You might want to try cooling the area with a cold pack – ice is a natural pain reliever and will work in case of swelling or bumps. Place it on the sore spot. If you feel that this helps, leave it on for no more than 10 minutes each hour. See a doctor if you suspect inflammation.
You may take medicine that reduces pain, swelling and irritation without medical advice, but see your doctor if symptoms do not improve.
Consult your doctor about what best to do and whether you need rest or activity. We recommend you get back to your normal activities as soon as possible, as movement helps your muscles to relax and stay strong.
