Tailor’s bunion is an enlargement of the fifth metatarsal bone at the base of the little toe. The symptoms of tailor’s bunions include redness, swelling, and pain at the site of the enlargement. These symptoms occur when wearing shoes that rub against the enlargement, irritating the soft tissues underneath the skin and producing inflammation. Surgery is often considered when pain continues despite wearing comfortable shoes. Surgery is highly successful in the treatment of tailor’s bunions.
