How long to treat sprained ankle.

I suffered a sprained ankle on Sunday night, four days ago. I've been keeping my ankle wrapped since Monday. I'm wondering how long I should keep wrapping my ankle at this point. I'm not sure how bad the sprain was but since swelling and pain issupposed to be significantly decreased after 1-3 days in grade I sprains, I'm fairly certain it's a grade II sprain because t's still somewhat swollen and is still painful. I'm also wondering for how much longer I should keep it elevated at night. Also, should I still be using ice or heat or what?
