Brief Answer:
Need to see a doctor

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I have seen the attached pictures .
You seem to have developed fresh wounds over arm.
You need to keep the affected area clean and dry .
Wash with lukewarm water .
Apply a topical antibiotic cream like neosporin or mupirocin over the affected area twice daily .
You might a course of oral antibiotics if the wound tends to get infected.
Also I would advise you to see a nearby doctor soon since you might require sutures in the deeper wounds .
Take some oral painkillers like ibuprofen or paracetamol to reduce the inflammation and pain .
