I have always had an issue using ice packs on injuries as I find them too cold to bear for more than a minute or so.
I have come up with an alternative: rice. Put a loose plastic bag full of 1kg dried, uncooked rice in the freezer. It's not as cold on the wound but stays a useable temperature for at least 1/2 hour and can be shaped around the affected area without slumping to the bottom of the bag so it provides even relief.
