Common Questions and Answers about Rash on ankles

rash

My 37 year old son has a strange looking rash on his ankles. This just started about 4 days ago. Initially it looked more like a regular rash, but has been changing in appearance. The rash is mainly on the inner ankles. The spots have gotten larger, are yellowish brown on the inside now, with a red ring. They are very itchy, but not swollen nor feverish. Our local P.A. doesn't know what this may be, but prescribed some sort of cream for the itching. It isn't really helping.

have a rash on both ankles that itch and have dry skin. severely sore and red. had 2 emergency doctors look at it and was not sure what it was. I have used triple antibiotic ointment and cortisone creams to no avail. had when i was 6 years old then came back this year. One doctor thought shingles but said not possible. Has severe stabbing sharp pain once in awhile.
(I've even tried changing the brand of socks I wear, to no avail.) The rash has not appeared anywhere else on my body? Any ideas as to what it could be and how I can get rid of it? In addition to being itchy, it's also unattractive. Thanks in advance!
I have a rash on my left and right ankle that i have had for about two years now. It covers just about the whole ankle area. When the area is dry it itches.

I have had a skin rash on both my inner thighs and ankles since Aug (it is now Dec). My inner thigh rash appears to red blothy and somtimes appear bummpy when itched. I have been using Cortaird which at times seems to help but has not gotten rid of the rash. My ankle rash on the other hand appears like little red pimples and tend to get very itchy toward the later part of the day. Should I be concern since I have had my rash for so long and what else can I use to make it go away?
My 95 year old mother has had a rash with occasional open sores on her ankles and lower calves. It seems to be climbing up the calf on both legs. Her feet get small red bumps, but her ankle takes the brunt of the rash. She is not diabetic, is not bedridden, has had an ankle brachial test that came out fine. She's had 9 other blood tests that also came out fine. She's had a carotid artery test which also came out ok for a 95 year old.
Anybody had a red/ itchy/ hot rash on the ankles that travels up both legs?
I admit I have scratched a little but on the whole have refrained. The rash now spreads around both ankles/lower legs. I do not know if this is a heat related rash (but there are no bumps), an allergin, or from maybe the sun?

I have a rash, kinda looks like a razor rash, it hurts to the touch. Feels like bruising underneath but not discolored like a bruise would be. I dont have any insurance and it is hard to see a doc. Just wondering if anyone else ever had these symptoms. Oh, and in the morning when I get out of bed and walk my ankles feel like they are burning, on fire.
If it is raised it could be what my daughter had, an allergic reaction to dairy. She had a similar rash on her right arm and it took a while for a diagnosis...it was a ctually my watchful eye that helped find the diagnosis. Her doc kept saying allergies to dairy don't produce rashes like this! Anyway, if the rash is flat, and appears to be below the skin, it could be "petechiae" and that could be caused by systemic illnesses. Your doc could do bloodwork to rule to rule those out.

I've had these brown that appeared a couple of years ago now on my feet and ankles. They appeared out of nowhere and seem to be getting slightly worse as time goes on, they are starting to move up my lower leg now and i get red dots on my legs that look a little like a heat rash.
For about eight years now I've been getting these little red bumps on my ankles. They sometimes appear in small clusters and sometimes are single bumps here and there. They are mildly itchy. Some of them have fluid inside. It often looks like I've been attacked by a swarm of mosquitoes - although the bumps are a bit smaller than mosquito bites. It seems to be more prevailent in the warmer months. It's not caused by shoes because I tend to go barefoot or wear sandals in the summer.
Hello, This rash on the ankles can be due to stasis dermatitis. It affects the lower limbs mostly. It is mostly from vascular problems in the lower limbs and may be caused by vascular insufficiency. It appears as appears thin, brown and tissue-like, with red spots, superficial skin irritation and/or darkening. I would suggest you to get it evaluated from a dermatologist and get the diagnosis confirmed.
