A:   Hello
Thank you for posting your query on ATD.

I have gone through your query and understand your concern. You may have got ligament injury. Treatment can be rest and analgesic such as ibuprofen. Vitamin B and c is helpful in recovery. It can be confirmed by MRI of it. If you have a fever then it can be cellulitis. Hope your query get answered.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
