In brief: Allergic reaction

An antihistamine immediately, with ice and elevation.
If the symptoms persist beyond the foot, i.E throat tightness, difficulty breathing then go straight to the emergency room for immediate attention.

In brief: Cool compresses

If the reaction is localized to the ankle, and your child does not have any other swelling elsewhere, difficulty breathing, coughing, or tightness in the throat or chest, i would do the following: cool compresses to the affected area, and benadryl (diphenhydramine).
If any of the above are present, seek immediate medical care.
