Hello, I went through your query, Treatment for a sprained ankle depends on the severity of the injury. Although self-care measures and over-the-counter pain medications may be all you need, since you have swelling a medical evaluation is necessary to reveal how badly you've sprained your ankle, you may need to use crape bandage to support the ankle.
