  • YUP that baby sucks your skin dry....cocoa butter and lots of water does wonders re hydrating the skin

  • it's probably dry skin and it's stretching because of the swelling.

  • When your ankles swell it stretches the skin and can cause itching. Try lotions to help and keep your feet up as much as possible. Also staying as hyrdated as you can will help. good luck.
