Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having swollen foot with bad pain since last 2 days is most likely because of arthritis.Arthritis is a form of joint disorder that involves inflammation of one or more joints.But, there are many kinds of arthritis, each with different symptoms and treatments. Most types of arthritis are chronic.

The main treatment is nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) These are anti-inflammatory drugs that can also relieve pain and stiffness.Low dose corticosteroids like prednisolone may be required.Also medications like Glucosamine and Chondroitin may be prescribed.

Following is recommended for you now:

  • Take tab. Ibuprofen 400 mg from the counter.
  • Apply heat in the form of a warm wash cloth applied to the area for 10 minutes or so 2 or 3 times a day increase blood flow to the area allowing to subside the inflammation
  • Apply analgesic gel such as diclofenac sodium twice a day
  • Have bed rest as much as possible.

All this will help you greatly.

Also you will need prescription medications for this to relieve the pain & treat arthritis accordingly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped
