A bunion is a bony formation typically on the joint of the big toe joint that pushes the big toe inward towards the other toes. The skin over the formation may become red and swollen making it difficult to wear shoes. Over a period of time you experience pain from the big toe crowding the other toes. Bunions are common in women who wear shoes that are too tight. They also may be caused by genetic structural defects or an arthritic condition. Bunionettes can form on the joints of the other toes. Dr. Inderjit Panesar treats bunions and foot related conditions.
