Hi there, Im about 3 weeks post op from ankle

Hi there,
Im about 3 weeks post op from ankle surgery.
And when I went in to the surgeon for my 2 week check up I showed them a pressure sour I was developing on my heel.
It’s now the 3rd week, pressure is off that area and it’s not gone away. It’s turned purple.
Please help, I’m freaking out.

I am 17 weeks post op ankle surgery...tib fib fx...screws and plates each side. last week I developed a red itchy rash on inside incision, and on ankle and leg....none on the outside incision. I have changed NOTHING...soap, food, clothes, etc. Calms down at night, flares back up during the day when I am on it and when it gets warmer from socks and clothing.
