In brief: Venous eczema

Redness due to vein obstruction and venous insufficiency is due to elevated interstitial pressure and inflammation.
Once these are relieved, redness will subside.

In brief: Dvt

Depends if acute or chronic .
Red leg with deep vein thrombosis seems serious. Would go to e.R asap. Redness should decrease as swelling decreases.
