  1. Hi
    Any injury over the ankle? Ankle twist or pull in the recent past?
  2. Do use cold packs over the ankle and the sole for 15 minutes each atleast 2-3 times a day. Do not apply any hot therapy.
    Keep the leg over two pillows or elevated so the swelling may go.
    Do wear cushioned chappals.
    Avoid standing for long at one place.
    See a good physiotherapy clinic soon and get the physiotherapy done, if there is no wound.
    The therapy should include ultrasonic therapy over ankle and sole.
    IFT and cold packs.
    Once the pain subsides few exercises will be taught too.
  3. Medicines will not help much...they are for temporary relief.
