Hello,
Whenever there is redness, pain and warmth over an area of skin the first possibility that needs to be explored is of any bacterial infection. I suggest you to get a blood culture and if need arises a skin biopsy of the red patch done to confirm the diagnosis. If bacterial infection is confirmed then you may need a course of topical and oral antibiotics.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
