Are my scrapes infected?

I have several scrapes on the sides of my leg and arm. They are really really red and raised and bumpy, and fade to what looks like some sort of rash or burn. It happened on about three days ago and I immediately cleaned and bandages the wounds and kept neosporin on them, but after a few days it still looked horrible so last night I let it air out and have been putting vitamin E on them.

I figure it might be better to give pictures so this is my arm:

and this is my leg:

They look a lot more red person, but my arm is starting to scab yellow and my leg is scabbing yellow/greenish.
Again, they're also raised and bumpy. I've been taking care of them but they still seem infected to me, so I'm not sure.

Another question I have is how badly do you think this will end up scarring? Thank you
