As we age, our bodies change. Sometimes, after the wear and tear of everyday life, bunions form on our feet. And this can be a literal pain if you’re someone who walks a lot when you’re traveling.
Bunions mostly show up in women, especially those who used to wear tight, pointed-toed shoes such as heels when they were younger. A bunion is swelling of the joint on the big toe. It can be very painful and make shoes uncomfortable.
