Bunions can be painful, specifically along the side or bottom of your feet.
The pain is normally worse when you’re wearing shoes or walking.
Don’t confuse bunions for a broken toe, which causes pain, bruising and swelling after an injury.
You also shouldn’t mix up bunions with gout, which presents as red, hot, swollen skin over the joint that comes and goes.
Arthritis symptoms can also be similar to bunions – it causes aching, swollen and stiff joints that are usually worse in the morning.
