Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day.

More important than medications is physiotherapy So if not started yet physiotherapy in the form of taping and vmo strengthening exercises is a must Bed rest is not required Avoid squatting sitting cross legged and avoid running fast Sometimes bracing also helps but to decide whether brace will help or not I need to see you All the best for your recovery according to reports  it is a minor issue do not worry you will get better Please do remember opinion is given on basis of report and may change after seeing and examining the patient

Along with the medication you require strengthening exercises for quadriceps, VMO, tibialis anterior and peroneus and with that taping may help in supporting your patella. Swimming, cycling to maintain mobility of knee.
