Dark patch with pain

My grandmother got a skin patch developing in her leg. This was one week ago which resulted in itching. Now the darkness of the patch has faded but she says she experiences periodic pain on the skin especially when wearing slippers. At first I thought it was just an ordinary skin patch that disappears over days but it is not since she claims it hurts. I managed to get an appointment with a dermatologist for tomorrow but I can't wait to know if it is serious. Please help!

Hello
Thanks for the clear photograph. It is eczema due to dryness of the skin. Nothing to worry. Please go ahead with your appointment with a dermatologist for proper treatment.
