    Sounds like you have minor infection in your wound. Clean it carefully with soap and water and apply an antibiotic ointment then bandage the wound. A thing to consider if the wound is not very deep and is not in area irritated by clothing or likely to get dirty you don't have to bandage it. this helps keep the wound dry. If it would otherwise be irritated or get dirty bandage it and let it dry out out a little before reapplying another bandage. Try to keep your wound clean and use anti-biotic ointment to help it heal. IF it does not clear up in a few days you should check with a doctor in case you have a more serious infection that would need treatment with anti-biotics.
