Can be due to cellulitis.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Thanks for posting your query.

The weeping foot at your age can be due to a superficial skin infection like cellulitis or excessive swelling of foot due to DVT cardiac or renal failure. This needs detailed examination culture of the fluid and proper broad spectrum antibiotics after a few investigations.

I hope this answers your query.

Take care.
