Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
It looks to me that you had hot your ankle and shin petty hard. I would recommend you to take advice from a orthopaedic surgeon. Apply ice and take brufen tablet. you can also apply compression bandage. Your doctor will ask you to get your x ray of ankle to make sure that it is not a bony injury. He may ask you to apply plaster over leg.
