First of all the Diabetes need to be under strict diet control. From the looks of description, it looks like cellulitis , he will need antibiotics, leg elevation and even some diuretics if his BP is uncontrolled as well. Since he has had Diabetic Foot as well, continue meeting your surgeon to remove the Gangrene that's developing . He seriously needs Physician and Surgeon opinion. Reach your doctors immediately
