We have a 3 year old who was just getting over an illness

Customer Question

We have a 3 year old who was just getting over an illness (flu?) Today he had a small abraision in the middle of his chest - looks like a scratch. There are two faint red lines noticed at the time of noticing the scratch. One lines goes down towards his belly& the other goes up. These lines have not gotten any longer & his fever seems to have gone down. Do we need to worry about this?
