Should my infected lacerations still be red and oozing yellow pus, even on antibiotics?

I have lacerations on the side of my calves, right above my ankle. The ankle is a bit swollen. The skin surrounding the lacerations is raised and red, making the lacerations more visible. I clean it with water, wipe it dry. I apply neosporin on it, which starts making it ooze yellow pus. I started taking cephalexin 500mg on Monday at 10pm, every six hours. It is hurting less than Monday, but it looks more red and new yellow pus. Is this normal? What should I do next?
