Are there other reddish areas? Does the skin feel different (harder)?

A small callus or two usually goes away by itself. Bacteria can cause a film over the skin or shell and look pinkish, but deeper red like in the pictures could be from bruising or an internal infection. I would have a vet take a look at him and maybe do some blood tests.

Betadine might help a little, but I wouldn't expect much in terms of results. Is there a picture of the puncture?

Looks much better. I'm not sure what it could be, I've never had any workup done on this sort of problem, but the smaller ones do go seem to go away by themselves. The punctures are very odd and even if its getting better, it should still be monitored.
