In brief: Dermatologist

I agree with the other answers would agree with biopsy by a dermatologist also certain medications can sometime cause ulcers e.
g. Hydroxurea used to treat elevated platelet counts.

In brief: See phlebologist

Check www.Phlebogogy.
Org, and seek help of phlebologist in your area. Ultrasound of leg veins is needed to evaluate superficial veins for reflux, and especially looking at ulcer sites for incompetent perforators. These can be ablated with endovenous method, and sclerotherapy may be indicated. Other causes of ulcers: peripheral arterial dz, vasculitis, diabetes.

In brief: See a vein specialis

Leg ulcers are often caused by chronic venous insufficiency which is a problem that causes to much pressure to be in the veins near the skin.
Laser ablation is used to treat this condition. It is important to treat incompetent perforator veins which are very important in ulcer formation. A venous specialist can diagnose and treat this condition. Our cure rate with venous ulcers is 97%.

In brief: More tests

It sounds like you need to have the ulcers biopsies and further blood testing performed.
