  • A bunion is where the big toe bone pokes out more than it should..I would know, I have that problem on both feet, no thanks to my bio mother (she put me in super small shoes..that is one of things that caused the bunions, as I have had them for as long as I can remember). They are super painful at times, especially when wearing uncomfortable shoes. I have to wear flippies or wide sneakers to be totally comfortable and need surgery to have them corrected..just waiting to figure out when I can get the surgeries. Seriously, google bunions and it'll give you a picture and better explanation than I gave you. lol.

  • a bunion is a bone or a hard callous on the base of the big toe. Often needs surgery to correct it.
