Experience Professional Help with Precise Care
Do you have pain and inflammation of the little toe? Or do you have swelling and redness of the area around and on the little toe? A Bunionette or a Tailors Bunion is a bony structure that can be found at the fifth metatarsal joint or the base of the little toe. With its name stemming from centuries ago, the Tailor's Bunion as a deformity occurred when the tailors sat in a cross-legged position the whole day resulting in the outside of the edge of the foot in constant friction or rubbing against the ground which caused a bump at the base of the toe that was painful. The podiatrists at Cupertino Podiatry near San Jose, California are experts with know how and years of experience. They render excellent professional medical help with detailed follow up and care.

Extending their experience with knowledge, years of study and treatment of foot problems, the podiatrists at the clinic in Cupertino give their patients individualized attention and follow up. As a painful and uncomfortable condition, a Bunionette is also known as intractable plantar keratosis or Metatarsalgia. The symptoms that are evident are mostly pain and in some cases breaking of the skin occurs due to friction resulting in infection. At first the bunionette shows up as a lump and eventually turns into a callus with the patient finding it difficult to walk or stand. The intrinsic causes of bunionettes are congenital with the long bones of the forefoot being bowed. The extrinsic causes would be the result of the posture while working or wearing tight footwear or due to foot arthritis. Bunionettes are more common among women and ballet dancers due to pressure of tight footwear.

Lead a Pain-Free Lifestyle
The podiatrists at the Cupertino clinic ask their patients precise questions about their condition and recommend X-rays to see if the foot is splayed and would check the range of motion of the foot. The podiatrists at the Cupertino clinic near San Jose would examine the affected part of the leg or foot with care and determine whether the condition should be treated non-surgically or surgically. The non-surgical treatment would involve application of Bunionette pads or similar or corresponding material and comfortable footwear so that the forefoot rests with ease. The Tailor's Bunion would need surgery in severe cases where the bone that is under the bunion would be removed by a small incision with a chisel and the edges of the bone would be made smooth.
The podiatrists at the clinic in Cupertino would prescribe footwear that provides space for the toes and to avoid wearing shoes with high heels or pointed toes. The podiatrists would recommend corticosteroid injections if the pain is too severe and/or oral medication with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that would reduce the inflammation and ease the pain. The pain and inflammation can also be reduced with an ice pack. The affected area would be covered with Bunion pads to reduce the pain and make the patient feel comfortable.
