Dear Maura,

My boyfriend hates my feet. I can’t wear any nice footwear in the summer or when we are on holidays. It bugs me but he can’t even be near me if I have my feet out.
 
At night I have to get into bed first so he won’t have to look at them. The problem is that I have this awful bunion. I don’t know what to do with it. My dad had the same thing.
 
Any advice?
 
Maura says: Of course you can get help with this problem. Make an appointment with a chiropodist and they will be able to assess how bad your bunion is.
 
There is a procedure that can be done to reduce the size of your bunion. The best thing to do is to get professional advice and you can take it from there.
