What do I do?
Okay so I have a cut on my arm and the skin around it is turning yellow, and I'm really scared because I can't show it to anybody. I don't have any alcohol to rub it to try to help, and my friend told me it could spread. I'm really scared what do I do?

It sounds like you have a mild infection going on. You might have pus trapped under the skin that needs to be squeezed out

I go by if its turning yellow/green/black see a doctor. As you are yellow/green see a doctor within next few days at least, if it goes black go to ER immediately.

See a doctor.
But contrary to popular belief, alcohol is not good for cuts and scrapes. It actually harms the good tissue, and delays healing.
Yellow or jaundice could mean multiple things! Not necessarily bad. You should see a professional.

You need to, clean up the wound, either with hydrogen peroxide, or iodine. To stop the spread of infection into your blood stream you must get some antibiotics, preferably penicillin, or amoxicillin. If your cut is getting sore, becoming painful to the touch, and is getting worse, instead of subsiding. You must go to a local clinic, or see a doctor!

You tell someone and have it looked at by a professional.
