Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for using XXXXXXX

The extreme redness and heat are the signs of infammation. This is most commonly caused by infection due to bacteria causing cellulitis. There may be associated other features like swelling and pain.
The other causes of inflammation are allergy, injury, fungi and vascular problem. But these are relatively rare.

Hope this answered your query. Feel free to ask if any related query and I will be glad to answer them.

Wish you good health.
