URGENT: Swollen ankles/feet + Itching = Allergy?

Posted by joie_x3

I recently sprained both my ankles. Because my grandma was taking care of me while I wasn't able to walk well or at all, she also insisted that I put on Chinese herbal medicine under the wraps. It began itching within 24 hours, but she continued rewetting it for about a total of 4 days. (If it was up to me, I would've stopped when it first began itching.) It's been a week since, but my ankles are even more swollen and itchy than before. It's gotten so bad that I wake up several times in the middle of the night because it itches and my ankles are so swollen and fat that they have folds when I'm walking. What can I do about the itching until I can see a doctor? Is it necessary to get it checked out? If so, should I go to my pediatrician (PCP) or is there a specialist I should see?
Thanks in advance!
