Athletes's foot: Athletes's foot is a fungus that can appear in many different forms on the foot from dry scaly itchy skin to small blisters or rashy appearance. A good otc treatment is Lamisil (terbinafine) cream, and epsom salt soaks for 5-10 min. You can also see a podiatrist to get an rx.

Break or sprain: Yes it is possible to break a bone, ligament or cartilage. If you cannot put weight on it then you should at least get an x-ray to check the bones. If the x-ray is negative for a bone fracture then you probably damaged ligaments and/or possibly cartilage. An MRI would show these areas. See an ankle specialist to get the best evaluation and treatment options.
A 39-year-old member asked:

See a specialist: There are different types of growth plate fractures. If the fracture involved the ankle joint then there may be damage in the joint cartilage causing the pain. Any misalignment of a bone in the joint can also cause pain. You need to see a specialist who will evaluate and possibly take an MRI to see if there is any damage in the joint.
