I broke my tib and fib, left leg in July. Two plates and 22

Customer Question

I broke my tib and fib, left leg in July. Two plates and 22 screws are still in. Also suffered a blod clot which now appears to have calcified, but I'm still taking warfarin. Just started wearing a compression stocking about a month ago.
I have developed a rash that appears to be the worst over the plate on my fib. Scabby sometimes. I'm also developing rashes on other areas of my body....arm, chest but not as severe as the ankle. Itching can be intense. I've told myself it's the winter weather, but I'm beginning to wonder if there is something else going on. Any advice appreciated.

Sorry, don't seem to be able to post a picture. That's okay. I will go to my family doctor tomorrow.

The picture isn't essential, but can you describe the rash more fully?
