A bunion is a red swollen area of tissue located over a joint, which can be painful and can get worse over time. The joint that is mainly affected by bunions is on the big toe and may be a precursor to suffering from gout. According to western medicine bunions mainly occur from wearing tight fitting shoes that put to much pressure against the joints of the toe, which irritates the tissue and causes it to protrude outward.
