So I've had these shiny red spots just below my ankle for maybe 2 years now and they don't seem to be healing any. I'd ge them checked out by a doctor but I don't have any health insurance. Can anyone identify what they may be? There isn't any pain associated with them.

They're not raised, and no pain. The main one is about 3 cm in diameter. My worry is it's a venous ulcer, because it's clearly red due to blood, and around the area is some red blotches. I'm assuming the shiny skin is scar tissue. For now I'm wrapping my leg in an ace bandage to restrict the blood flow and let it heal during the day, maybe that will make some progress.
