Hello, I am hoping a few people here may have experienced something similar and be able to offer some advice.
Basically, I got bitten on my left ankle, during the hot spell and it was as itchy as hell for a good few days, then, yesterday afternoon, it just swelled up, got really hot and more itchy. I've used Lanacane to try and stop the itchiness and have an ice pack on it as we speak. The question is, should I run on it?
I decided I would run on it last night as I couldn't think of a reason why it would affect it. I had hoped this morning that it might have gone down but, if anything, it's slightly worse.
As it's not actually anything to with the ankle joint or muscles/ligaments within, I'm kind of assuming that running can't really have too much of an effect. It doesn't hurt particlarly and just feels generally uncomfortable.
I'm really enjoying my running at the moment and don't want this to lose me any days, particularly as I couldn't do anything over the weekend and the weekend coming is probably also going to be too busy to run.
