Referred to as both a scar and a "marking" in canon in addition to "a red serpent". It's about two centimeters wide and is only skin-deep; it isn't an enlargement of the veins or any sort of infection. It's exactly that, a scar.

"The crimson band that had risen up on his skin began from his left ankle, coiled up his leg and extended across his crotch and torso, wound past his armpit and reached up to his neck. It was, literally, like a snake that was strangling him. It was slithering over his naked body. A red meander scar."

The symbolism of a snake or serpant is important; a serpant tempted Eve in the creation story in the Bible; Eve is Nezumi's stage name.

In the anime, the scar reaches up behind the back of his neck and stops below his left eye.
