Neatly-localized redness can appear as swelling subsides. This type of painless redness stays exactly at the same location once swelling has fully subsided and can persist a long time. So far as I know, it’s due to minor damage caused by inflammation and in my opinion is nothing to be worried about nor should it be treated with ibuprofen. If pain and/or swelling returns however, ibuprofen might be warranted.
But I have obviously not even seen your foot… if you were examined by a professionnal (not necessarily a rheumatologist or even a doctor), they could give you better advice.
