Symptoms:  Pain in the outer side of my left foot bruising and a little swollen but has simmered down through the day the bruise is still the but less pain and swollness
Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to ATD.

The bruises, pain and swelling is indicating that there is a soft tissues trauma and you need to see an Orthopedic Surgeon for clinical evaluation, examination and investigations.
Till then apply a crepe bandage in such a way that it supports the ankle.

Hope this helps you.
