Itchy ankels?
My bottom part of the foot at the ankle becomes itchy, there is no redness, or swelling. What could the reason for this be? No other part itches, and I do not have craked heels. My feet are in very good condition.

If you have varicose veins( I speculate) you can get a varicose eczema.
If you are in a job where you stand for long periods the the blood pools around the ankle and you may get itching as a result.
Go see your gp about this as a start
