What causes a brown discoloration on my wife's lower legs?

Pigmentary changes

Open-uri20120707-19154-1xjd6mk
Difficult to say without seeing. Commonly brown discoloration can occur over the skin after inflammation has subsided and healing is occuring in areas of previous rashes. This phenomenon is known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). On lower legs this can occur after developing chronic stasis dermatitis. PIH usually improves with time.

Aging spots

Brown or other venous stasis lesions on the skin come from long term edema and swelling that damages the skin and makes it appear to age too early.

What can cause selling in your lower leg. There is no discoloration, but some minor pain. There are no cuts or bruises. The swelling is not severe?

Varicose veins

Leg
The heart pumps blood, under great pressure, out into the arteries, but the blood must return to the heart in veins, which are thinned walled. There is no pump on the return, vein side, and as we get older, some veins bulge and swell, and even leak fluid into the local skin. These are varicose veins and they may cause swelling or a bulge on the lower leg. Keep your legs up, and see your doctor

Allergies
This could be small drops f blood in skin. This can come from varicose veins. If however they are of recent onset they could represent a condition called vasculitis which is an allergic reaction to a drug, or possible underlying infection. Either way see a doctor for evaluation. It is difficult to remove the color of changes from varicose veins.

What can cause lower leg pain?

You name it...

Lower_leg_pain
You would have to be more specific as to what is the exact nature, location, duration, onset, course, associated symptoms, and timing. It could just be the beginning of arthritis, muscle pains, nerve impingement, sprains, strains, etc.
