In brief: Stasis Dermatitis

This sounds like stasis dermatitis.
This is a condition that is caused by compromised venous circulation. The veins in the legs loose their sturdiness as we age, decreasing the ability of those veins to return blood back up the legs to the heart for recirculation. This causes pooling of blood in the veins of the legs, swelling feet/ankles, and skin irritation (bright red rash). Get it checked.
