- Apply a clean and cool, wet washcloth over the affected area
- Keep your arm moving
- If possible, get some rest
If you have e a fever, to reduce any discomfort:
- Drink lots of fluids
- Wear comfortable clothes
- Speak with your doctor about taking over-the-counter medicine, like aspirin, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, or antihistamines
