Do You Have Painful Bunions?
Look for an angular, bony bump on the side of the foot usually at the base of the big toe. Sometimes hardened skin or a callus forms and covers the bump.
There is usually swelling, redness, tenderness, or pain at the base of the big toe and in the ball of the foot. Eventually, the area becomes shiny and warm to the touch. If you think you have a bunion and you want to be evaluated, call JOI-2000.
