Thanks Aditya for your query.
You have traumatic edema in your foot which is normal. Keep the foot raised and massage it lightly in upward direction. Take care of the cuts. Apply antiseptics and antibiotics to avoid infection. Take tab Zerodol SP twice daily for 3 days for pain and decreasing swelling.
