Thanks for writing in.
There is always some kind of dry skin and exfoliation when the swelling over legs subsides.You need to apply a good quality moisturizer cream XXXXXXX butter based twice daily for few days .
If you can upload photo of the affected area it would be of great help in pinpinting the condition.Photos can be UPLOADED by UPLOAD YOUR REPORTS section on right side of this box.
Upload the images and we can continue the discussion here.
Hope this helps.
I will be available for follow up.
