I've had what I thought was ingrown hair on leg, red around it size of quarter, a little warm and swollen, had since yesterday. Should I go to doctor?

In brief: If worsens

Draw a line around the red swollen area on your leg.
If the area grows, gets more red, stays warm, or you develop a fever, then I would go to see your Doctor as you may need antibiotics or debridement.

In brief: Yes

Yes you should go be evaluated.
This is likely an infection on your leg. You may need to be on some oral antibiotics and may need to have the area opened to drain.
