bunion under little toe
A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of the big toe. However, if you are experiencing a bunion-like bump under your little toe, it is most likely a tailor's bunion, also known as a bunionette. This is a bony prominence that forms on the joint of the fifth metatarsal, which is the bone that connects the little toe to the foot. Tailor's bunions are caused by the same factors that cause regular bunions, such as genetics, foot injuries, and certain types of shoes. Treatment options include wearing shoes with a wide toe box, using pads or splints to reduce pressure on the bunion, and in severe cases, surgery may be recommended.
