You can use toe seperater between great toe and second toe.. Which may ease the pain. . you can use bunion splint also while resting to the alter the alignment..  Check for weight bearing on foot from a physio or podriatrist and get foot wear modified .Get foot  and leg muscles released from a physio. These will ease your pain for sure..

Get blood uric acid done which can be the cause if pain. Second reason for pain can be a nerve pain. Als there can be a halux valgus deformity developing. Please consult an Ortho surgeon for diagnosis and treatment.
