Tailor’s bunion (Little toe bunion)
 

Bunions are abnormal bone formations that are prevalent on the foot. They are also one of the most common types of foot problems. Bunions are typically heredity which suggests that the innate shape of the foot may be the cause for the condition. Typically, bunions worsen over time and cause discomfort, difficulty walking, and skin problems such as corns and lesions.

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 wear of shoes that are too small or tight can alleviate the problem.

Treatment of Tailor’s Bunions is fairly simple. Just by using padding and wearing a wider, softer shoes can help the problem. 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.
