I have sudden discoloration of my lower legs half way up to my calf. I am diabetic and have high blood pressure. The discoloration seems to be clotted blood in thin lines. What is it?

Dear, discoloration of lower legs occurs: due to lack of arterial blood supply towards lower limb. Due to improper blood circulation towards lower legs dead cell collect there and blackness occurs. To treat this problem, * do massage your lower limb in upward direction slowly with mustard oil. * dip your lower limb in lukewarm water for 3 to 4 minutes. * maintain your bp and sugar in normal level or range. * do regular walk for 10 minutes. * take less amount of ghee, butter. * avoid drinking and smoking completely.
