Itching and Burning Scab

Above my lateral left ankle region i have this scab which is growing larger, it burns sometimes and itches a lot, in any case its always a sensitive to touch, every time i itch it it becomes inflammed again. I was told this could be due to vericocity. Could this be a venal ulcer?

Hi Yeah it could be venous ulcer secondary to varicose veins.... But cannot conclude unless examined.....Kindly consult dermatologist first to rule out skin issues....
