The Housemate has a swollen, painful ankle that is hot to the touch and won't bear weight. We are going with RICE for now, and if there is no improvement when I get home from work I'll take her to the doctor's. Until then - any suggestions? Any advice on use of a bandage? She has one wrapped around the ankle right now to prevent her from accidentally turning it and hurting, but neither of us have expertise in how to treat a sprained ankle.
