Go see your doctor : Right away, this may be something serious going on. Although it does not have to mean that something bad is going on, you must get evaluated, there are a few things that need to be ruled out, for example bacterial meningitis. Summary: go get evaluated.

See your doctor: If the wound puncture site appears red, irritated it could potentially be infected. I would follow up with your doctor asap.
