Personally, I am not a doctor. However, it may be a good idea to ask one nearby depending on where you live. Otherwise, I cannot help you other then give you that information.

whenever you have something swollen/inflamed you want to use ice to make the swelling go down. heat will usually either not help or make it worse . and u should try some herbal salve to help heal.

I had my foot in ice water but I don't think it helped that much. But I will try it again.

Use an ice pack. Swollen means you need to bring it down with coldness.
