R) rest- rest your foot on the sofa or somthing

I) ice- place some ice on it like an ice pack or a bag of something loose out of the freezer

C) compression- wrap it up in a bandage

E) elevation- keep it elevated so higher than your body is to keep the blood from running to the injury.

Answer #5

The ibuprofin doesnt rreally work but the ice has made the swelling go down a little mbut it stopped minimizing on Saturday. if you gently touch it there is a little bump. What should I do 2morrow at school? I cant elevate it at school. Please help. Should I even go to school? I need help.
