Swollen ankle due to sprain.
hi, Thank you for your query, i hope my suggestion helps. Apply ice cube to the part to reduce swelling and pain, Keep the limb elevated and aplly a moderately tight bandage to your ankle . Immobilize it and take complete rest until pain and swelling come down. For pain take zerodol 100mg (2 times a day) or ibuprofen 200mg (twice daily) for 2-3 days until your pain subsides. Hope this helps.
