Ok
Customer: replied 11 days ago.
42 just been trying to rest it and yes can put weight on it but it's really sore
Expert:  M Javid, MD replied 11 days ago.

Home treatment that you could do for this:

1. Apply cold packs.

2. Apply a balm, like Tiger balm. Then loosely wrap it up with a crepe bandage.

3. Use an NSAID to reduce swelling and pain. Ibuprofen, for example, 400 mg three times a day.

4. Elevate the leg.

I hope this helps?

Please let me know if you have any questions about this.
