Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
shot to the chin?
swollen ankle now can be due to gout or joint infection or possibly even a blood clot or DVT
he should see a doctor at the ER and get an ultrasound of the ankle and xray to check for deep venous thrombosis and fracture and infection.
have you been icing his chin to help his bruise there?
how old is he?
best to get him checked at at the ER and ultrasound of the leg
