How are you doing today? Are they red, appear infected? Don't know how long it has been but cuts will slowly heal unless subjected to repeated stress.

 

If they don't seem to be getting better, then you should be seen by a medical professional especially since they are painful and you are obviously worried.There is always a risk of infection in any cut.
