In brief: Ankle rash

Ankle rashes can be caused by a wide variety of diseases, disorders and conditions, such as infection, inflammation, allergic reaction, eczema, insect bites, and autoimmune processes.
For example, an acute ankle rash that appears suddenly may be caused by an allergic reaction or sensitivity to a particular substance, such as poison ivy. See you dermatologist for a diagnosis and treatment.
