Ankle has chronic swelling, black areas under ankle bone, now painful

Please direct my post to another topic if this is not the correct one.

I'm 65 yo male and have had chronic swelling in my left ankle for 10 years or so. The last few years, black areas have developed under the ankle on both sides.

I wear 20-30 mm Hg support socks, which help a lot with the swelling.

Now the black area on the inside of my foot is painful, as if there's an infection there.

Need treatment recommendation.
