bunion hurts to touch

If a bunion is painful to the touch, it may be caused by inflammation in the joint and surrounding tissue. This can be caused by a number of factors such as wearing tight or ill-fitting shoes, overuse, or an underlying medical condition such as arthritis.

Treatment options for a bunion that is painful to touch include:

  • Resting and elevating the affected foot
  • Applying ice or a cold pack to the bunion to reduce inflammation
  • Taking over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to help reduce pain and inflammation
  • Wearing shoes that have a wide toe box and a low heel to reduce pressure on the bunion
  • Using bunion pads or orthotics to help redistribute weight and pressure on the foot

If the pain persists, it's recommended to consult with a podiatrist or orthopedic surgeon for proper diagnosis and treatment. They may recommend physical therapy or even surgery if the bunion is causing severe pain, difficulty walking, or significant deformity.
