I Have A Red Patch By My Ankle And Its Getting Bigger

I have a red patch by my ankle, and it's getting bigger. It started realy small; now it's going to the other ankle in the same spot. It's small, but it's getting bigger. The doctor said I had a nickel reaction, but I told them it wasn't it. They prescribed hydrocortisone cream, and its not working.

Answer

Why do you think it might be a different diagnosis that what your doctor indicated? If you're not happy with your doctor's diagnosis, you might try seeing a dermatologist. They specialize in treating conditions that affect the skin and are usually very good at identifying unusual spots, rashes, etc.
