Tailor's 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. Sometime, even something as simple as eliminating the wear of shoes that are too small or tight can alleviate the problem.

Depending on the severity of the deformity, there are different types of treatments available for Tailor's bunion.  First line of treatment includes shoe modifiation, NSAIDs, orthosis and rest.  If these treatments do not help to alleviate the symptoms, surgery to correct the deformity maybe necessary.
