bunion inflammation

Bunions (Hallux valgus) can cause inflammation in the joint and surrounding tissue. Inflammation 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.

Symptoms of bunion inflammation include:

  • Pain, especially when wearing tight shoes or standing for long periods of time
  • Swelling and redness around the bunion
  • Stiffness in the big toe joint
  • Difficulty walking or standing

Treatment options for bunion inflammation 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 inflammation persists, it's recommended to consult with a podiatrist or an 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.
