Hello There. i can understand your concern.. since its not improving by the home remedies its high time you consult a doctor in person. the cause of the swelling needs to be evaluated. give get a pain killer like tab. aceclofenac 100 mg now and take her to a orthopedic surgeon in person for further evaluation and management. there are too many causes for this problem and its difficult to pin point one without examining. best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain.
