You may: You may have psoriatic arthritis in light of the psoriasis and ankle swelling that you have. It is unusual to see it with sweet's syndrome. If you have not seen a rheumatologist, i would recommend that you see one.

Psoriatic arthritis: You may have psoriatic arthritis. Often the joint symptoms persist after the skin lesions are gone. Time to see a rheumatologist.
