Red lower leg, swollen, varicose veins. Treatment?

I have noticed a few days ago a reddened area on my lower right leg, right about where my sock line is. I do have and have had some leg swelling for the past year or so in both of my lower legs, I have varicose veins badly as well. This morning I noticed the reddened area is a lot darker and definately more visable. I doesn t seem warm to the touch, raised nor does it itch or hurt. I am 33 years old. Umm.. I dunno what it is.. and I m a little worried about it. Any ideas?

Welcome to HCM,
It seems that this problem may be due to your bad varicose veins or you might have deep vein thrombosis,
Consult vascular surgeon as soon as possible as it may create serious problems to your legs.
At present you might have infection due to poor circulation and may have big problem in the future.
Go for diabetes check up.
Ok and bye.
