This shows a sprained ankle. The ankle and foot are swollen because they were not wrapped with an elastic bandage right after the injury.
First Aid Care Advice for Ankle Sprain:
- Wrap with a snug elastic bandage.
- Apply an ice pack (crushed ice in a plastic bag covered with a towel) to reduce swelling and pain.
