5 Remedies: How To Reduce Bunion Size Naturally

This condition could be painful. Wearing high heels or tighter shoes is impossible. You will feel like your feet will quit their job.

Many people suffer from this foot deformity. It’s like a bump on the side of the big toe.

This bump can change the bone order in the foot. The big toe is forced to lean toward the second toe while throwing it out of alignment.

This process continues throughout the years producing the visible bump.

Doctors prescribe medications and often recommend surgery to fix this problem.

However, I found a few natural remedies that might help.

First, let me show you few of the most common reasons that cause bunions.

Dr. Richard Perez from the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons will explain to you everything you need to know about this condition.

Let’s hear him out:

Now, the natural ways:

Olive Oil

All you have to do is to warm up some olive oil and massage the bunion area. Don’t forget to go over the toes and foot.

Keep massaging for about 15 minutes. You should perform this procedure twice a day.

Massaging with olive oil will improve circulation and blood flow to the foot and toes. The synovial fluid will be encouraged to move freely around the bones lubricating the joints.

The whole process will dissolve the excess calcium of the bunion, and it will help it to heal.

Red Pepper

With its capsaicin, the red pepper can eliminate pain and discomfort.

All you need to do is to cut one red pepper in half and rub the juice over the bunion.

Add a petroleum jelly and cover the bunion with a bandage. You need to use this method twice a day.

Wash your hands after every application.

Castor Oil

The castor oil and its anti-inflammatory properties ease pain and reduce swelling.

All you need to do is to heat up some castor oil, dip a thin cloth into it and wrap it around your bunions.

You can cover it with a towel preventing the heat from escaping. This procedure will stimulate blood flow and relieve soreness.

Repeat this three times a day until the pain subsides.

Epsom Salt

It contains magnesium sulfate that reduces inflammation and minimizes pain.

Dissolve ½ cup of Epsom salt into a small bracket of hot water. Soak your foot in it for 20 minutes.

Use this method two times a day.

The salt will decalcify the joint and diminish the size of the bunion.


Treat it with ice like you treat any other swelling. Put it directly on the bunion for about 10 minutes. Repeat this procedure few times a day to reduce swelling and alleviate pain.


Here is an exercise that I found. It could be helpful while you are applying these natural remedies.

I hope this will help you and your friends who are suffering from this.
