The swelling in leg and pain can be due to;

1) Blood clot also termed deep vein thrombosis.

2) Peripheral arterial disease due to diabetes and secondary infection.

Both of these need colored doppler study of the arteries and veins.

3) Infection in the skin, subcutaneous and deeper tissue which will require, antibiotics.

You need an immediate exam by your doctor.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
