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. ...Read more
On my right ankle, I see two black spots, side by side, and the veins are more noticeable. Should I be alarmed?

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.

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.

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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
