We Offer Relief for Unsightly Bunions
Tailor’s bunions are a variation of the traditional bunion. This common foot ailment that is typically caused by continued pressure to the outside of the foot. In this case, the bunion is situated on the outside of the 5th toe. It causes the foot to rub against shoes and can create redness, swelling, and even require surgery. Sometimes, even something as simple as eliminating the wearing of shoes that are too tight can alleviate the problem.
Treatment of Tailor’s bunions is fairly simple. Just by using padding and wearing wider, softer shoes, the problem can be solved. Also, shoes can be spot stretched to make the area of the shoe a bit wider next to where the Tailor’s bunion lies. This is typically done at a podiatrist’s office. Another treatment option requires applying Vaseline along with special wrapping which may be worn for a set amount of time. This treatment may resolve your symptoms and eliminate the need for surgery.
