Red, swollen, itchy wound. Yellow inside.

Patient

Q: I cut myself whilst shaving four-five days ago and now the area surrounding the cut is swollen, red and itchy. The cut itself is yellowish inside and has gotten somewhat smaller, but the redness surrounding the cut has gotten bigger. I was wondering if this indicates an infection? I am currently using an antibiotic ointment on the cut.

Symptoms:  Very itchy skin surrounding the cut.
