Scars on Feet (Photo)

I have scars on both of my feet, with no knowledge of how they came to be. Occasionally they itch and swell. They're dark red, with no particular shape. They're raised a bit and the biggest one seems to be very slowly spreading up towards my ankle. I don't recall ever having a wound that would leave a scar this big; they just seemed to have appeared over maybe a month, I think. Both are smooth and have no numbness

Vein problems and ankle redness

These areas may represent a vein problem or vein condition. I would suggest a consultation and ultrasound of the lower extremities.
