In brief: Get it stitched

If your cut couldn't close itself in the first 24-48 hours it needs to be stitched.
I am hoping your hand is not red and that there are no streaks up your arms. And you have no fever, right? Because that would be worse. You need to get the hand cleaned, possibly surgically, depending on the depth, and stitched. Go to a local er or walk-in clinic, they'll fix you up. Maybe give you antibiotics.
