Warm up and relax: If the swelling persists, you can try over the counter medications such as Ibuprofen or naproxen, but give your body a chance to recover before jumping to taking medication.

Gradual warmth: Just staying inside in the warmth for a while should do the trick. It is likely just from the skin getting cold.
