Actually, if he was admitted for a painful red leg in the hospital then he is likely to have been admitted for a condition which is known as Cellulitis. This is a bacterial infection of the soft tissues and the skin of the leg. It occurs because of bacteria getting into the soft tissues from either a cut or a prick from a needle or even from bacteria present in the blood stream. This leads to pain, swelling, redness, tightness in the legs. It is a common infection and can be treated quite effectively with IV antibiotics, compression bandaging on the leg, elevation of the leg as well as anti-inflammatory medications like NSAIDs. Usually, this problem is not serious unless the infection spreads to the rest of the body in which case sepsis (serious bloodstream infection) occurs. In that case, strong IV antibiotics with IV fluids would be needed to treat the problem.

But as I said in most cases the treatment is simple with the help of IV antibiotics in the hospital. Here is a link where you can read more about this,

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
