Yes, hookworms are able to penetrate intact skin and that is actually the main way for a person to become infected. Hookworms usually infect a person who has been walking barefoot in contaminated soil. Most people who are infected show no symptoms and do not even know that they have the parasite. If a person does show adverse symptoms, and it is due to hookworm, there is medicine to treat the infected person.
The underlying cause would be increased blood flow; however, there are several reasons why this could have occurred.
One is trauma - a scrape, scratch or bruise to the skin or underlying muscle would cause the skin to turn red. This would be more visible if the overlying hair had also been removed.
Another is infection, which can be either bacterial or fungal in nature. There is usually a foul-smelling greasy exudate on the skin and it tends to itch like crazy.
Third would be an allergic reaction, which could be to anything from fleas to food to pollen.
Your veterinarian will be able to help sort out exactly what happened, as well as prescribe appropriate treatment. A wound would be treated with cleaning, fur trimming and giving it time to heal; an infection needs antibiotics of some sort and allergies need avoidance therapy.

You should first put some disinfectant on it. Then maybe after it settles you can put some ointment on it.(such as neosporin) If you have pre-wrap or some sort of ace bandage make sure to put that on.
Melanin and carotene are skin pigments that help block damaging rays from the sun. The more of these pigments in the skin the greater the protection.
Melanin, it absorbs sunlight and stops your skin taking damage :)
Skin cells, both living and dead (your dermis and epidermis) provide the protective layer for your body. Your skin is also the largest organ in your body.
