Depends: Providing you do not have poor circulation or loss of sensation, you can use an ice pack to treat foot pain. Ice would be used for injuries to the foot or ankle such as strains or sprains. Bruises or contusions can also be treated with ice packs.

Depends on the cause: Ice is good for some things and not good foor other conditions. Have it evaluated and treated appropriately.
Dr. Jeffrey Kass

Depends: If you have something like an ingrown toenail, likely, the ice will not do much to solve your problem.
