In brief: Derm or allergy

Ankles are very susceptible to a vast number of dermatology or allergic responses as widely varied as spider bites and allergic reaction to anything that has touched your skin at the ankle.
Try otc anti itch creams and low dose Benadryl (diphenhydramine) if you are able and cool wet compress. If it doesn't improve see your doctor.

In brief: Insect bite

Consider the insect bite and the subsequent reaction.
Watch out for any fever/ chills, red streaks going up the legs. See your physician.
