Dark spots on legs and they hurt when touched

I m a 19 and an African American female. A few years ago I was diagnosed & treated for cellulitis in my lower right leg from a cut. A year or two ago I noticed dark purple/red spots on my lower legs. They hurt when touched and pretude a little. I don t think they re bruises because I dont allow my legs to be hit because of what happened all those years ago. What is it or what could it be?

Hi Sloane,
Welcome to HCM.
It could be infection of cellulitis again because ther is colour change,pains on pressure and also protudes inside so you better consult a vascular surgeon to appropriate treatment.You require better care since you already had a history.
Take care.
