Is this gangrene or some type of necrosis?

About a month ago I noticed that there is a small patch of skin on the side of my ankle/foot that is extremely dry and light brownish black in color. It feels rough too.

There is no pain but it does look/feel weird :(

By the way i'm only 19!
BTW this patch of skin is about the size of a penny and is on the left ball of my foot/ankle.

If it was it would smell really bad because both those terms means your skin is rotting. It sounds like dry skin, just use lotion and an exfoliate.   (+ info)
