No.: Because you're not mentioning the other hallmarks of infection, i.e. Warmth and drainage, this is more likely related to insect bites than infection, and the itchiness would also be typical of some sort of insect bite.
A 37-year-old member asked:

Yes.: It is possible for the ankle joint itself to get an infection particularly if this redness is associated with warmth and/or pain, this would be an area of concern.

Let it pop.: It sounds like you might have a blister. I would recommend letting it pop on its own. Once it does, just treat the area with alcohol or betadine. I do not recommend popping this on your own.
