hello!
In my opinion you should immediately start antifilarial drugs (e.g Ivermectin or DEC) after consulting nearest physician.
As i am not aware of your location i advice you to go for laboratory diagnosis for confirmation of infecting agent and other supportive radiological tests as you already have filarial leg. All these will help in your management.
Hope i have judtified it. I will be happy to help you for future queries.
I find this answer helpful
