In brief: Ice
Ice is great for decreasing pain and swelling acutely.
Immerse an extremity in an icebath, rub the affected area with ice, or place a frozen bag of corn or gel pack on the area for 15-20 min every couple hours the first day or two.

In brief: Vicks
Vicks vapor rub, icy hot, bengay, tiger baum are some otc products that could help.
Also the best home remedy is ice and cold compresses. Hydrate yourself, and i hope this helps!

In brief: Ice
Usually ice on the affected area along with some NSAID meds are helpful that is why i recommend a routine of hard/ easy workouts to allow muscles to recover from a difficulty workout and avoid future injuries.
