Thanks for query,
There are various type of spots on ankle.
if some part of ankle remains in contact with ground while sitting,remian conact with ground becomes black and rough.
if you had some fungal infection and itching you may get,and having dermatitis,eczema.
if not doing proper cleaning in the creases you might have this discoloration.
Ok and bye.
