Why does icing make my foot swell?

I know that icing the foot is highly recommended to combat inflammation. When I rub an ice cube on my heel, even for a short time, the heel swells which in turn makes my heel hurt even more! This doesn't seem to happen if I use frozen peas or frozen gel packs. Does this happen to anyone else's foot? If so, do you know why?
Thanks for any information you can provide! Rhonda
