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.

Abscess: likely. Need to examine in order to determine that, but that is most likely. See a doctor in the next couple of days (preferably within 24 hours). This is not a complaint that requires going to an E.R. Urgent care would be preferred if you couldn't get into your regular primary care physician. ...Read more
