Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Your mother might be suffering from an autoimmune disorder.She needs a good dermatologist and might need a life long treatment for this disorder. Just be sure to continue the treatment for long as the response is usually slow and relapse is common.

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

The swelling part in your mother might be separate from the itching she is getting.You should consult a dermatologist for her itching ,but for swelling she should consult a physician.
Before that she can use a good moisturizing cream 3-4 time a day over both legs to relieve itching .She can also take cetrizine tablets for the same.The best time to apply a moisturizer is just after bath on wet skin.
