The legs swelled and changed color

Surgeon-phlebologist-lymphologist, surgeon of the first category

Grandma has swelling of the lower extremities, manysmall wounds: on the lower leg and near the toes; the liquid flows out. with the beginning there were simply plump legs, after there were bubbles with a liquid, then they burst - and wounds appeared. Now a lot of small wounds, which turn into one big wound. the skin in places of swelling changes color and becomes darker (like a bruise). There was a doctor / prescribed: Furosemide, detraleks, ciprinol.
The doctor did not give the diagnosis (they called for a house), he told the surgeon.

The most likely cause of edema in the elderlyage - heart failure. Against the backdrop of any swelling, the lymph accumulating under the skin may leak and irritate the skin. To eliminate swelling and wound closure, you need to bandage your legs with elastic bandages from morning to night.
