please help. ankle sprain

i sprained my ankle about a month ago, tripping and twisting backwards laterally. the pain was pretty minor and i expected it to be gone in about twenty minutes. well, its about a month later and it still hasnt completely recovered.
Thing is, i didnt take proper care of it in the beginning, especially the first 48 hrs, the "critical period" and i had to work at my job, where i have to be standing and walking the entire time (every time i worked for like more than 4 hours, it would worsen). i put ice on it sometimes (probly not enough) in the beginning, and i have been wearing and ace bandage every day since. i later learned about the RICE method but was confused about which I should apply, ice or heat, or both, and in what kind of sequence?

Point is, I probly didnt pay enough attention to it as i shouldve and now im worried at the super slow rate at which its healing. worried that it might not ever get fully better. Can somebody help me?
