For a couple of years now, I have had a growing red, ill defined patch on my lower leg (above the ankle by a couple of inches). It's always dry no matter what I do to moisturize it. My GP thinks it's nothing to worry about, and that it's simply an area of skin that was injured and, due to poor circulation in our legs, it hasn't healed well. I am skeptical as I haven't injured it and it's getting bigger. Any ideas of what it could be? It's around 5cm wide/10cm long. Steroid cream has also not made a difference.
Addendum: I have also (in the last week) developed a mole a few inches from this lesion that I didn't have before.
