Hand cut, red lined. Got stitches, red line gone. Should we still worry?

My fiancé is a metal fabricator & cut his hand at work. 3-4 days later, a red line appeared on his arm . The line went from the cut all the way up his fore arm. He wouldn t go o the doctors tht night, but the line was pretty much gone by the next day. It s been 10 days now since the stitches where done & the red line is gone. Should we still worry?
