In brief: See a doctor

The wound sounds deep so the potential for infection and further problems down the road is high- therefore you need to see a physician.
Without seeing a physician- you will not know if it requires stitches, antibiotics, or even of there is tendon or nerve injury.

In brief: Go

Get help both for the arm wound but more importantly to get help on why you would hurt yourself.
..See talk to your family and/or get immediate medical help.
