It could be Cellulitis
As per your description,it looks like Cellulitis, i.e, infection of skin and subcutaneous tissue.
I prescribe Antibiotic like Linezolid 600mg twice daily, Anti inflammatory tablet containing Aceclofenac twice daily after food for 7 days initially.Depending on the response,I will extend the treatment.Elevation of the affected limb will have beneficial effect

Wish you good health and speedy recovery
