You : You can ice it and take nsaid's such as advil (ibuprofen) (as long as you can tolerate advil (ibuprofen) and don't have stomach problems or kidney problems). If the swelling increases or you have increased pain, redness, fevever, or progressive symptoms then you would have to go to have it evaluated by your doctor.
