Can venous insufficiency be related to foot fungus ?

Hi, I am a 50 year old male and have had toe nail fungus in my right foot for many years. The sole of my foot is also itchy. Have tried all kinds of topicals to no avail. The real question is that my right ankle has become discolored. Two doctors have called it venous insufficiency. Is it possible the venous problem is due to the fungus? Joel
