Hi This looks like a condition called pigmented purpuric dermatosis. This condition may be because of long hours standing or because of varicose veins. It is only a cosmetic problem and is usually unrelated to any other medical issues. However do get tested for varicose veins. Using a compression stocking may prevent further increase. However the existing pigmentation may not get better.
