Hi XXXXXXX

Thank you for sharing your problem.

I had seen your x-rays and I do not see any fracture there. But wrist injuries can often involve ligaments which connects the small and large bones. As you have pain on movement to one side,
I suggest you have either elastocrepe bandage or light weight plaster cast for at least 2 weeks. It is for getting sufficient rest for the wrist so that the injured ligaments could heal well.

Regards
Dr Krishna Kumar

Hi XXXXXXX

There are medicines to relieve the pain and swelling. However, it has to be taken under prescription of a doctor. It would be unethical to prescribe any medication online, without examining you or finding the exact cause.
