How can I tell if a burn is infected?

I spilled a pan full of burning hot oil on my shin and there is now a indent there after the blisters popped. It is slightly red around the wound but not warm to the touch. The surface of the wound is white and yellow. I’ve been putting burn cream on it and need to know whether or not it is infected
