Brief Answer:
I would suggest ankle brace

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

If there is ankle sprain then I would suggest an ankle brace atleast for few days. This will help in faster and better recovery as it restricts foot movement.

Otherwise there are many ointments/sprays like volini spray can be used for temporary relief of pain.
Pain killers like ibuprofen 200 mg twice a day to be used only if pain is bad.

One more question Should I use ice or heat for my sprained ankle?

Brief Answer:
None is needed

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

Thanks for following up

Since there is less swelling or pain, neither heat nor cold is recommended. Cold is recommended to decrease swelling size which is not a problem in your case. Resting the foot would be enough.
