Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Please call your primary care physician about this and follow any recommendations.

Stasis dermatitis is sometimes called venous stasis dermatitis because it happens when there is a problem with the veins, generally in the lower legs. These problem veins cause pressure to build up as the blood tries to flow through the body and heart.

This would explain the swelling and pain.
