Pus filled pimple on finger, red line from wrist to armpit. Do I need to go to ER now?

I had a small zit-type thing at the inside base of my finger (on my right arm ). It was sore and filled with puss so I popped it with a needle. Now about 24 hours later I ve noticed a red line (.5-1 thick) going from my wrist up to my armpit. What I see mostly on the internet is that this may be an infection. Do I need to go to ER now, or am I okay to wait until tomorrow morning to see my regular doctor?
