Thanks for your query

Itchy patch on the ankle may be but to the following common reasons:
1) T.corporis
2) Eczema
3) Psoriasis
There are other differentials that need to be excluded as well.

I will be able to help you better if you can send me the picture o the patch in good resolution.You can send them to YYYY@YYYY with the subject as 'ATTN DR.TANUSHREE BISWAS'.
Please let me know if the patch is dry or you can see some secretions when you itch/scratch.
What tinea cream have you used and for how long?

I will be happy to answer any folio-up query that you have.

Wish you good health,
