Symptoms:  Really itchy and swollen on my legs and back and ankle
Doctor :   You could visit a Dermatologist for a proper clinical diagnosis. However, such itchy lesions in the lower legs and back (assuming it to be in the waist region) may be due to a fungal infection. You should put your socks for washing after every single use and dry them inside-out in sun. Try to keep your skin folds clean and dry, especially during summers and seek immediate medical advice to prevent it from spreading further.
