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
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.
