Show your parents so: That they can decide if you need medical care RCE. REST- the foot. Avoid activities requiring use of ankle. Can apply warmth since you are 5 days out. COMPRESSION- Wrap foot, ankle & lower leg w ace wrap. Make sure it is not so tight that it decreases your circulation. ELEVATE- elevate ankle above your heart. Can prop on pillow.
