Purple Spots On Right Ankle
Sometimes my feet randomly turn a purple/black color with purple spots near my ankles and it's hard to move my toes.?
Specific picture.: Somethings just can't be evaluated without actually seeing the issue at hand. I fear that this is one of them. Randomly occurring skin discolorations are sometimes impossible to explain, let along come up with a treatment plan. I suggest you take a picture of the event and upload it so a visual appreciation can be made. I feel certain that a Healthtap specialist can then help you.
On my right ankle, I see two black spots, side by side, and the veins are more noticeable. Should I be alarmed?
Dermatologist: Prominent veins in the ankle area are not unusual, but the pigmented spots will have to be examined by your physician or dermatologist for diagnosis. It would be quite unusual for two malignant lesions, like melanomas, to be present side by side, however.
I've had a slightly large red rash, or maybe fungus on my right ankle for over a year now with smaller spots near it, what could it be?
It could be...: Athlete's foot. The best otc medication (in my opinion) is lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra. Dilute vinegar soaks are good as well. Dry the inside of your shoes by placing them up-side down over an air return vent at home overnight. If this doesn't make things better in a couple days, see a podiatrist.See 1 more doctor answer

I'm having a bad reaxn to Diflucan (fluconazole) inc. Rash on face (brown sun spots peeling off) legs have red/purple spot w/severe knee/ankle pain. Could be yeast?
Allergic reaction: With such severe symptoms you should go to the ER. Go now. DrG
See a doctor: Would have to see them to tell. Best to be examined by a doctor.

I have a spot on my right ankle that started 8 months ago and it looks like athlete feet but I already have tryed Lamisil (terbinafine) and it didn't desapear?
Stasis Dermatitis: Without seeing a picture, the more common reason for seeing purple near an ankle is likely related to some venous insufficency and hemosiderin (iron) deposition in the skin staining the skin. However, any pigmentation of skin should always be examined by a dermatologist to ensure there is no malignant lesions.See 2 more doctor answers
There is one spot on my right ankle, on the bone that has always been numb. I don't know why...is this ok?
If the spot has been stable and has not become larger, you may just watch and wait. Take care to protect the area from injury. If the numb area becomes larger or an ulcer develops in the numb area, see a doctor.

Played soccer and kicked in ankle. Slowly healed but 2 weeks later got kicked same spot. Now yellow & swollen. Purple is underneath. Help me plz. Tnx.
Kicked: This certainly sounds like a deep bruise, especially when you describe the color changes. Ice and nsaids if you can take them will help as will rest. Bruises can turn all sorts of colors as the blood is broken down by enzymes that leaked from broken blood vessels

My 5 year old has purple bruise-like spot on ankle. Hard and raised on edges. Pediatrician said use hydrocortisone which has had no affect. What now?
Many possibilities.: Hard to say without a photo, but it could actually be a bruise. I'm assuming it appeared recently, so it's not a birthmark. Other possibilities include an insect or spider bite, an allergy to something he/she came in contact with, or a focal infection. If Hydrocortisone had no effect, I would recommend an examination by a dermatologist.See 1 more doctor answer
