Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I think that you should go to the emergency to have this evaluated again.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It could be arthritis of the ankle joints or cellulitis or could be an allergic reaction to something since you mention that they are extremely itchy.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would not agree with your GP in just dismissing it as it being something not serious.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

i would like to get to the bottom of this and would like that you should go to the emergency to have this evaluated further.
