Hello there...., Foot swelling may be a symptom of a condition or an injury affecting the foot or the whole body. The severity of swelling largely depends on its underlying cause. ... Elevating your foot with pillows while resting or sleeping. This will help reduce swelling.... Getting plenty of rest and not putting weight on your ankle... apply ice to the injured area as soon as you can to reduce swelling.... Consult orthopedician....
