Thank you for the information,

I would advise to get an examination.

You need an X ray to rule out a fracture there when there is swelling with restriction of movement.

Please keep it at rest & elevated.

You can apply ice for the first 48- 72 hours.

This should not be applied directly.

Pl apply after wrapping it in a towel for 10-15 min., leaving in between for the temperature to return to normal.

You can try anti-inflammatory analgesics like ibuprofen, naproxen if you do not have any contraindication.

You need to take it after meal to avoid irritation of stomach.

I would advise to get an examination by doctor.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.
