Pediatrician 's  Response

Thank you for your query.

As you have not mentioned your age and history of any other illness it is very difficult to given a specific guidance for your problem. If you are also running fever then you need to consult a doctor to rule out infection of the ankle joint which can be painful, and red. Appropriate investigations shall be done and thereafter a course of antibiotic will have to be given if it is proved to be ankle joint infection.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing you an early recovery.

This may be an exacerbation of Psoriasis.
It is very unlikely to any condition involving the bone and the joint.

Before taking many medication consult your dermatologist.
