Symptoms of Tailor’s bunion will include a bulging bump on the outside of the small toe. Pain will vary from person to person and depend on the severity of the condition. In some cases, patients will be unable to place weight on the affected foot, limiting their ability to walk.
Since the pain from a Tailor’s bunion is always aggravated by shoe wear, the symptoms will often depend on the type and size of shoes worn. Skin irritations, including corns and calluses may form where the foot rubs against the shoe.
Your doctor will generally diagnose claw toe with a simple physical exam. In some cases, X-rays might be necessary.
