Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
You are probably having water retention due to something. Usually conditions of heart, kidney, liver or low protein or severe anemia, which cause ankle swelling cause both ankles to swell. Hence if both ankles are swelling then you will need to get heart function assessed by ECHO and EKG, get kidney and liver function tests done and get a complete blood picture for anemia. Low sodium in blood, hypothyroidism and malabsorption syndromes causing low protein in blood have to be looked into. Apart from this there appears to be infection of the skin. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. You will need to follow this up with your doctor.  Take care!

Hope you find the cause. Deep vein thrombosis is another ption that should be looked into.
