Hello, There might be localized problem like blockage of out flow blood from the limb. Second, there might be skin or soft tissue inflammation leading to swelling and discharge but like you mentioned, there is no pain, still one need to rule out it. Other possibility could be eczema (dermatitis). One needs to examine the limbs to reach final diagnosis. You are already taking diuretics. Consult your physician. Take care.
