Bruised foot

My elderly mother fell and bruised the entire top of her left foot. She had it x-rayed and nothing was broken - and it was improving, but yesterday she wrapped it in warm wet cloths repeatedly and last night it had turned much darker blue and was extremely painful; she couldn't put any weight on it. Were the warm cloths a bad idea? Please advise, and thanks!

A layer of gel combined with a foot cover to help protect metatarsals and toes from friction and pressure. It also ideal for cushioning the ball of foot and provides warmth for people suffering from arthritis or poor circulation to the toes.
