Suggest treatment for painful ankle sprain
Ligament sprain and tears
Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
Thanks for the query.
In ankle sprain, the ligaments covering the ankle can get stretched or torn. This can take 4-6 weeks to heal which is why it is still red. If there was a fracture, you wouldn't be able to walk at all.
I advise you to use a walking boot or basketball shoes with high top so that the ankles are protected unlike with other types of shoes. Apply ice to reduce inflammation. Walk carefully as until the ligaments heal, there is tendency to sprain and twist your ankle again.
I hope I have answered your query.
I will be available to answer your follow up queries.
