Hi my name is***** will reply to you in just a moment, allow me to read the question.
It sounds like a staph infection or what we call cellulitis. It likely is an infection that needs to be treated. I would recommend having him be seen for antibiotics. It may just be something called superficial thrombophlebitis which isn't dangerous but needs to be evaluated.
Does he have a history of skin infections before?
