don't repeat the same mistake.swelling may be due to either soft tissue injury like muscle or ligament damage or it may be due to fracture of bone,so better confirm with digital x-ray as only hairline crack may not be clearly visible in normal x icing for 10 minutes continuously 2 hour interval .within 48 hours after injury u should do the icing then go for hot water dip.but repeating again don't punch if u r not professional puncher.
