Soaking & padding: General foot pain is difficult to heal. Soaks and padding is ideal. Over the counter mentholated products can be of some help.

It depends.: Your question is extremely vague. Treatment options would depend on many things. Where is your foot pain? When does it occur. What remedies have you already attempted. A complete history and physical exam would be necessary and possibly X-rays in order to properly evaluate your foot pain. I would recommend you consult a local Podiatrist for an evaluation.

Orthotics: You need a custom made orthotic which will realign the bones and joints in your feet. This should only be made by a podiatrist! you can temporarily take an over the counter antiinflammatory during the day, ice the feet, and wear shoes that already have a good arch support. See a podiatrist for possible cortisone injections if the pain continues. You may have plantar fasciitis.

Two things: One is to see a podiatrist. He/she will probably inject some cortisone medication. You also might want to take an NSAID like alleve to help relieve the pain until you see the podiatrist. If you opt to take alleve please follow the instructions on the package and for sure do not take if you have stomach ulcers or take drugs like warfarin or other stomach or esophageal problems.
