C is for Compression - Compression of the swollen area will help to reduce the swelling. Use cohesive, Tear Tape, crepe or any stretch bandage but not elastic adhesive bandage as this should only be applied by qualified persons. Ensure that this is not too tight and check every few minutes, because continued swelling can make a compression too tight even if relatively loose in the beginning.
