Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

It looks like ab erythematous lesion. It could be due to an underlying blood coagulation disorder or hemolytic cause like thalassemia or sickle cell disease.
Kindly consult a surgeon or an orthopedic doctor for an examination and specific investigations to rule out the above causes.

Hope this helped.
Regards
