Canbe due to corn or inflammation.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in the ball of the foot can be due to an inflammation at the head of metatarsals. You need to give it some rest, take regular anti inflammatory medicines. This can also happen in case of a corn which may need to be removed surgically. Do consult your physician for an examination to confirm the diagnosis.
I hope this answers your query.
