Growing up, I had a few close friends who felt like members of my family. One of these special friends also happened to be my cousin. After her dad passed away when she was a young child, her mom raised her. Her mom has always been a spunky person. Unfortunately, her fearlessness recently caused her much pain. After being fed up with a bunion on her foot, my friend’s mom decided to take matters into her own hands. With a knife from her kitchen, she cut the bunion off of her foot. Sadly, she ended up contracting a staph infection in this foot. Because the infection was so severe, she was forced to recuperate in a nursing home. If you want to get rid of an aggravating bunion, seek medical treatment from an experienced podiatrist. On this blog, you will discover the most common methods podiatrists use to remove bunions.
