Bumps under skin on ankle bone

I have had these little bumps under my skin right on my ankle bone for over a month now, there s at least 5-8 on my left ankle, and recently it just started to appear on my right ankle. a couple mornings ago i woke up and my ankles were sore to walk on but that s the only time it has hurt. i don t see any sign of it being dry and i do use lotion often. i am on medication but i ve been on it for over a year now so it wouldn t be from that. please let me know.

Hello, two nights ago I realized that I have a bump about 2cm in length and 1cm in width just under my ankle bone. Since then it has been very itchy. I mean, VERY itchy. It is the color of my skin, but it is a little darker, so you can see that there is clearly a bump. I need help a.s.a.p. as I worry it is a Spider Bite or something...

Hi. I am a gymnast and was climbing rope at practice. I was a 1-3 feet above ground when I decided that I would drop because I do it all of the time! But this time, I landed on the end of the rope (on the knot) which just so happened to be lying on the ground. I landed on my ankle and it gave out and twisted completely sideways. I didn t think it would be too bad because I have very flexible ankles and they sometimes do that. It turned out to be a really bad sprain and was super swollen and bruised. This happened 3-5 weeks ago and all of the bruising and the majority of the swelling is gone (it looks like a normal ankle until you compare it to my other one-- I have Very small ankles) I have gained a lot of the motion back, but still can t point my toe very well. I also have a hard bump under my ankle bone in the slightly swollen area. Do you have any idea what that bump is, or what is wrong? I have pictures of you need them you can ask for my email and email me-- Thanks.

Hi. I sprained my ankle 3 days ago. The first day, there was swelling, pain, and I couldn t move my toes very well. The second day was a significant improvement. The swelling went down, it didn t really hurt, and I could move my toes almost normally. Today is the third day, and I feel like it s gone backwards. The swelling is back, and I can barely move my toes again, but there isn t any pain really. When I curl my toes downward, there s a significant throbbing under them until I let go, which doesn t happen in the other foot. I m just wondering if I should be seeking medical attention, or if this will go away on its own. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
