kitten has skin problem

I noticed something on my 7month old kitten's leg, and I don't know whether to wait and see if it heals on its own, or if I should take him to the vet.

He has a long strip of hair missing on his hind leg, it goes from right above his foot to right below his rear end. The skin has some redness in some areas (like a very level lump, not sticking out from the skin, but not just redness either), and even some flakyness in other areas.

He doesn't seem to favor the leg and I've never seen him licking at it. I don't know when it started, just noticed it 3 days ago for the first time.

Any thoughts what it might be? Should I go to the vet or wait?
