A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. It occurs when some of the bones in the front part of your foot move out of place. This causes the tip of your big toe to get pulled toward the smaller toes and forces the joint at the base of your big toe to stick out. The skin over the bunion might be red and sore.
Wearing tight, narrow shoes might cause bunions or make them worse. Bunions can also develop as a result of the shape of your foot, a foot deformity or a medical condition, such as arthritis.
Podopro Bunion Care Gel Sleeve
This comfortable sleeve cushions, pads & protects. This anatomically designed gel pad from Podopro conforms to the shape of the bunion which also relieves friction and pressure from the foot.
Podopro Bunion Toe Spreaders
These Bunion Toe Spreaders from Podopro can be used as an inter-digital wedge for bunion deformity, overlapping toes, or toe drift– helping to align the big toe to help reduce pain.
Dead skin on the feet can build up because of a lack of moisture– for example if your feet are constantly enclosed in shoes or socks, or from the friction of walking or running. It can also form if you don’t regularly care for, exfoliate or scrub your feet. Dead skin on your feet may appear dry, cracked, loose or hanging.
