ball of foot pain

I have had pain on the ball of my right foot. I am a nurse and have been out of work since Dec. 31. I am on my feet 8-12 hours a day 3 days a week. My podiatrist and I have tried taped padding of the foot. I am now using metatarsal pads in my shoes, and today he put a walking air cast on to relieve the pressure. In your opinion what would be the next step ie. cortisone? of treatment.

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
