In brief: Infection likely

Lymphangitis is inflammation of the lymphatic channel in the affected part of the body.
The lymph system s part f the immune system and includes lymph nodes that swell with infection. The main signs are redness, swelling, pain, and often a red streak up that channel, and may have swollen glands. It is often called "blood poisoning" and usually represents infection.
