How to heal broken foot?

Hi I m 13, just broke my foot yesterday and in temporary plaster cast since this morning. Being a young teen, I m very self conscious and I m worried about the handling the smell of my player cast. Is there any way to reduce the odor that will come in the near future. Any help very much appreciated, thanks :)

Plaster cast smell only when one starts putting secent or powder in it. It also begins to smell when you stratch in side with the help of pen, pencil, spoons etc. Kindly do not indulge in any of such activities.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
