bunion next to pinky toe
A bunion next to the pinky toe, also known as a "bunionette" or "tailor's bunion," 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. However, bunionette is less common than a bunion on the big toe. Symptoms of a bunionette include pain, redness, and swelling in the area, and difficulty in finding shoes that fit comfortably. 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.
