Hello... Itching ,red hot leg , I think its cellulitis ,commonly seen in older patients with diabetes ..or it could be peripheral vascular disease .. It's difficult to opine without local examination ... You have to take him to general surgeon ... I wish for his speed recovery , give his detailed medical or surgical history to treating doctor.
