How are bunions treated?

ANSWER

First, your doctor will check on why you have bunions. The cause will affect what treatment you need. Your doctor might recommend a prescription or an over-the-counter pain reliever. You may also want to use a heating pad or warm foot bath to ease the immediate pain and discomfort. Some people find that ice packs help.
