Red Blotches On Lower Legs With Burning Pain

I am sorry you are having burning pain in your legs. this could be coming from neuropathy from your diabetes which can often cause neuropathy or damage to the nerves to cause burning. also diabetes can cause poor circulation in the legs which can also cause burning.

the red blotches could be from venous status or the venous blood staying in the legs for long periods of time. or it could be cellulitis in the legs which is a skin infection.

have you had an ultrasound of your legs to check on blood flow and blood clots in the leg?

are you on any medications for neuropathy or buring pain in your legs?
