Recently I was walking around school and my right foot started hurting. At first it was settle, but it acts up sometimes. Like it's really really hard to walk without limping. It hurts right where my right side of the arch. There's no swelling or bruising visible. It just hurts a lot when I stand for a long period of time or if I walk. I would like to know how to take care of this.

Welcome to e health forum.

It is more likely that you may have sustained either a stress fracture or a sprain of your foot due to injury.

It would be recommended that you consult with your doctor and seek a medical examination , which may help in proper diagnosis and specific management.

In the mean time , use of Ice packs and NSAIDS can help to relieve your symptoms.

I hope this helps.
