Over the past 3-4 months, i got some dark areas on my ankles for some reason. There is no itching or pain. It kinda looks like a bruise. Very odd. My other ankle doesn't have the issue. On some days it looks bad and other days it is faded a bit. It feels a bit dry and i started to use moisturizer. Anyone have anything similar? Thanks.

They do look like bruises - have you been doing any new or different activities - hobbies, sports, gym? Using some different equipment at home or at work that is rubbing up against it or knocking into your ankle? If you have no other spots on the other leg or your arms or anywhere else it seems less likely to be due to some health condition.

You might try taking a daily picture to keep track of changes and see if that jibes with your activities in any way. I could say to see your doctor but you seem like a young guy and that's likely an overreaction if it's not painful/getting worse - I'd still keep an eye on it though.

OP it looks like you may be wearing high top tennis shoes, or similar, and your foot is rubbing on the inside of the shoe. I've had that happen.
If it continues and it's not a shoe problem then see a dermatologist for a diagnosis and a solution.
