I have a flat, non-itchy dark red spot on my ankle. It doesn't hurt either. It's about the size of a small oval pill. It's definitely not a mole or a scar. I've had it for two weeks. There is only one and I don't have any other symptoms.

I suggest you monitor the are for changes. If it persists after another week or two with changes, consult your physician. ...Read more
