bunion near pinky toe
A bunion near the pinky toe, also called a "tailor's bunion" or "bunionette," is a bony protrusion that forms on the outside of the foot at the base of the little toe. It is caused by a displacement of the bone and is similar to a bunion on the big toe. The symptoms of a bunionette are similar to those of a bunion, including pain, redness, and swelling in the area. Treatment options include rest, ice, over-the-counter pain relievers, physical therapy, and orthotics. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to correct the bunionette and alleviate the pain. It's best to consult with a podiatrist or orthopedic surgeon for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
