Usual treatment for any muscle / tendon strain - rest, ice, compression, elevation. Some anti-inflammatory if necessary for pain.
Don't run through it - try alternative exercise such cycling or swimming if that doesn't cause pain. Get some advice on hamstring strengthening to rebuild before you start pushing the running.
