Ankle instability : Lots of options for ankle instability. There are more aggressive ankle stabilization surgeries if you choose to redo it. Bracing is always an option of course, physical therapy for strengthening. In my opinion you should seek repair with some Ossetia or bony component/ tendon transfer or ligament reconstruction. With severe instability a fusion is a last resort as well. Good luck.

Fungal infection: If it is a fungal infection then there are many good choices over the counter in your local pharmacy to start with. Terbinfine is an excellent choice. For pain take some Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin. If you are swelling you should seek local help as you can develop a bacterial secondary infection and may require a prescription for antibiotic

Get a blood test: Sudden bruising without injury should be investigated with a complete blood cell count. This will include a platelet count as well as red blood cells and white blood cells. Start with your primary doctor, for the blood test. He/she may send you to a hematologist if the test indicates and abnormality. Or maybe you just are an aggressive sleeper. Don't ignore it, simple blood test

Thanks! Wish there'd been more room. Had a skin biopsy that was inconclusive, possibly early cutaneous lupus. Cortisone cream was ineffective. If it happens again, I'll insist on specific testing.
