It can be a hairline fracture . I want to suggest you to get x ray of the foot . That will tell us about the severity of the lesion. If there is any hair line fracture then it will be better to apply cast. Hairline fracture take more time in healing. I would also suggest you to take calcium and vitamin D3 tablet.
