What do you do with a new/hot splint? Suggestions and tip for treatment for splint and swelling are greatly appreciated.

Our vet recommends rest, ice, DMSO, and pressure bandage. Then it is subject to different treatments based on current signs. Very common in young horses and often due to injury in older horses over 4yo.
Gwen appears to have popped a new one that is causing edema and perhaps a bit of lameness, have been wrapping. Thanks for the tips!
