Our expert says:
Elevate the foot and put ice on the area. A packet of frozen peas work well, as it molds around the area! If it becomes blue you may have torn some of the ligaments and you may need to see your doctor to test for instability. Bind it with a crepe bandage to support the ligaments, rub with Voltaren Jel and use Panado or Dolorol Forte for the pain.
If you stand on your feet the whole day you may need to get a sick note for a few days to rest the foot. If you sit at a desk, try to elevate the foot and support it with a pillow.
