    I don't give advice for individual cases, but general precepts of care initial self-care for an injury to the foot and ankle with swelling would be to get off the foot, elevate it, use ice and compression, both with appropriate care to do no damage. (if one doesn't know what "appropriate care" means, one should find out before doing it). Then see a podiatrist or orthopedist as soon as possible.
