The skin was cut in the place of tuberosity of the tibiabones mean. By itself, such a trauma does not give edema of the foot. Can you also have a dislocation or subluxation of the ankle or subtalar joint. Edema because the outflow of lymph has been disturbed. Anoint with troxevasin. If the edema does not subside and severe pain is an excuse for a visit to a traumatologist. Load on the leg is best temporarily restricted and when resting put your foot on the elevation, such as an ottoman.

so that's what happened 3 days ago and only on the 3rd day the swelling started and it can be 3 days later

it usually does not begin immediately, but 2-3 days after the injury.

Go to the injury, take a second shot. Maybe the joint fluid (if at the heel). Everything is done for free. Swelling lasts a long time. Weeks 2. But we must repeatedly go to the doctor.
