Re: Shiny red sores below ankle, what are they?
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.
