If the bunionette starts to rub against the inside of your shoe, it can become swollen, red, and painful. The more misaligned the bones are, the further out the bunionette will be and the more painful it will become. The only way to permanently correct the deformity is with surgery, but conservative measures can be used to manage the discomfort until it becomes unbearable.
