Child with swollen spot on the leg after a fall. Taking ibuprofen. Treatment?

My daughter stepped down off of a swing earlier today and her other leg came down behind it by very hard. She was able to walk initially but after walking a little while she can no longer put any weight on it at all. She has taken ibuprofen about 30-45 minutes ago and the pain is not getting better it is getting worse. She also has a swollen spot on the outside area of her foot near where the tendon is.

Dear user
you should consult with ortho doctor . you should go with thorough examination , x- ray is very much necessary . it might be local tissue injry , sprain or fracture .

swelling and severe pain are not good signs.

it would be helpful to you .
