In brief: Depends on reason

A swollen foot could be due to bad veins, injury, infection, airplane flight or long trip, blood clot, heart failure, or a number of other different causes.
If simply swollen due to a sprain, resting the foot, raising the foot, applying ice, and wrapping with a bandage can help. If reason unknown, best to be evaluated.

In brief: Swollen

The cause of the swelling needs to be determined first.
As stated , it can be a number of different things and self diagnosis is always a bad idea . See your podiatrist for an evaluation and treatment plan .

In brief: Depends on cause

If from an injury then compression and ice should help.
If not from injury then you need to see a doctor.
