Really itchy sore lump and swelling

(2 Posts)

This sounds ridiculous but it's so annoying and actually a bit sore.

There's a small scratch just under my ankle bone that's got a lump underneath it that's sore to touch.

My ankle is swollen, but only in that area, not all the way around.

And I think the itchiness might cause me to amputate my foot. Antihistamines not touching it

It was sore before it got itchy.

Am I going to die? Is my foot going to fall off?

Any idea what it could be?

Alergic reaction to an insect bite? Sometimes antihistamin isn't enough, I would call into a pharmacy and ask them to have a look.
