Thanks for seeking advice.
Try the following things for a week-
1] Keep the affected foot elevated on 2-3 pillows at night.
2] Give hot fomentation to the affected foot.
3] Use an elastocrepe bandage to the affected foot.
Give rest to the foot for a week.
It should settle down by a week.
Take care.
