I got bit something and I'm having a weird reaction. I got bit around my ankle and it's swollen some, hard to the touch and hurts to put weight on it?
Is it indeed a bite?: The body reacts to various things in different ways. If it indeed is a bite, whatever the insect, it may have injected a venom. This indeed causes swelling. Particularly a bee sting, which does not always hurt at the moment. Skin infections can also resemble insect bites at first. If there is any redness, fever and chills, it becomes a mores serious situation. ...Read more
WHAT IS IT?:
The question is, is it nothing or is it something? Skin problems are really visual problems. Is it just callused skin, or something that needs a biopsy? Is the border choppy and irregular, color changes, size larger than head of pencil eraser, itch, drainage. Only by a doctor's exam can it be determined what to do next.

Sat outside at theater, in chairs on gravel, over next 2 day I have over 50 bites on feet, ankles, calves but mostly feet. Small hard bites, severe itch?
Chigger treatment.: This sounds so familiar. This used to happen to us when we lived in Virginia. Most likely you have been attacked by "chiggers".

I was hit very hard by a line drive softball on the inside or my leg right above ankle. Since then there has been lots swelling and a hard knot there.
Softball Turned Hard: Yeah, that's an area of thin skin and the bone is near the surface. You probably have a bone bruise and maybe even a "subperiostial hematoma" which just means it hurts and will take a while to go away. The effect of gravity will also work against you so elevating it a few times a day will help. Topical ice may help, plus tylenol (acetaminophen) or motrin or both. If getting worse in any way, get it checked out ...Read more
