As a Registered Nurse with a scary amount of experience I say- "Get some professional help-Pronto!!!" Try the nearest Urgent Care clinic if you don't have a doctor. We carry a lot of staph around our necks and this infection could get REAL nasty if you don't get it looked after.

go to the doctor, if you don't there is a risk of tetanus, which can turn really nasty quick.

See a doctor right away. The cut is infected and requires attention before it makes you very, very sick. Do not stop, do not pass go... just go to the doctor or the hospital right away.
