Default Does this look infected?

So I was at the beach the other day, foolishly climbing over some huge cement blocks that had been placed there to give the fish a place to gather or something, and I slipped on some algae. As I was falling, I instinctively put both of my hands out towards the ground to keep myself from falling face first onto the cement, and in doing so my wrist got caught against the jagged edge of one of these blocks and got scraped to hell with the full weight of my body pressing down against it as it happened.

Anyway, it's been a few days since then and it doesn't hurt as much as before, but when I woke up this morning the wound was looking a little green. Maybe it was just the pus and ointment, I don't know. I've been reguarly changing the bandaging and have been putting lots of antibiotic ointment on it, but it's still looking kinda disgusting.

I've considered seeing a doctor about it, but I've been sick lately and haven't had the energy to go see one. Plus I'm an ascetic and refuse all help unless it's a matter of life and death. But does it look bad enough to warrant medical attention?
