Bitten by vaccinated dog. Puncture wound, swelling. Will ice help swelling?

Got bit by a dog breaking up a fight at the park. Not sure if it was my dog or other dog who bit me. Both dogs are up to date with there rabies shots. Very small puncture wound but there is swelling on hand . Cleaned it with soap and water nd put anti bacterial cream on my hand. Will ice help the swelling ? Do I need to do anything else?
