simple cause


First and foremost, infection is out. Does anyone else in your family have this, do you stand on your feet a lot, does it get better when your legs are elevated or worse as the day progresses? Look up the terms venous insufficiency or Venous Stasis. Stop the water pills, stop the antibiotics, and get into a good pair of 20-30mmHg compression stockings and wear them when you are up.

Yes


Yes, just be sure they do not restrict blood flow to your toes. If your feet or toes turn blue or purple, then it is too tight. Other than that, there should be very little chance of problems with wearing ankle supports.

Many possibilities


the severe itching can be caused by the swollen anles and rash. The question is why the rash? from scratching?/ allergic reaction? bite? poison ivy? there are some disease processes that can cause both too, So, instead of guessing here, a visit to a doctor sounds like a great idea.

No need


Typically, bilateral ankle swelling is not a typical sign for blood clots. It would be highly unlikely for this person to have occluding blood clots in both legs at the same time. Other causes should be ruled out by his physician, so please get to the doctor asap

Need more evaluation


There are a variety of causes of swelling of the lower legs, many of which would not be something that would be found by a blood test. A good history and physical exam should be done, and most likely you will need an ultrasound test of your legs to evaluate the health and function of your leg veins. Vein problems such as varicose veins are common with pregnancy.

See your vascular dr


If you have varicose veins, you should have your vascular surgeon examine the situation. Support hose is helpful, but if unsuccessful please see the vascular doctor. swollen ankles are a side effect of varicose veins as the blood pools in the feet and ankles due to the lack of the veins returning the blood to the heart
