Can be: This can be tricky because soreness and redness are characteristics of both recent trauma and infection. I would monitor the area to make sure that it isn't getting worse. Increasing erythema (redness), pain, edema (swelling) and or induration (hardening) of the skin are signs of infection that should be evaluated. I hope this helps.
