Last night I went to bed and my ankle was extremely itchy; so I scratched it and went to bed. This morning I woke up and my ankle was still itchy and was a little swollen, so I put some hydrocortisone cream on it and left for work. 4 hours into work my ankle because to swell more and more to the point that my foot went tingly/numb. I showed it to a few nurses and they all suggested I go downstairs to instacare and get it checked out (the perks of working inside a hospital). I went down and 45 minutes later left instacare with a diagnosis of infected bug bite. (what kinda bug... I have no clue). I walked down the hall to the pharmacy (also convenient) and picked up my antibiotic which is now happily eating away at whatever infected my poor little ankle.
