The current guidelines are to treat acute gout with steroids. Such as prednisone. This is by prescription. Acute gout is common in the ankle and as you had gout before I can assume that it’s another attack. We are not allowed to prescribe medication on this site. Your gp can do so or a telemedicine site. I’ll get you some telemedicine sites that you can call for a prescription now.
You need tapering doses of,prednisone or a medrol dose pack. Do you have any questions or need clarification?
My pleasure to assist you. Let me know if you need additional information. Feel better.
