Bursae are fluid filled sacs usually containing synovial fluid which commonly develop overlying an anatomical joint deformity where your skin is subjected to increased pressure from footwear, when these areas become constantly inflamed and very sore the condition is known as a ‘bursitis.’
With continued irritation the condition may well become chronic with further distension due to fluid accumulation within the sac which can become infected.
