There may be bacterial infection delaying the healing.
Thanks for the pictures.
The white superficial skin layer is the dead skin --that has turned white and will fall off over time.
The underlying red raw tissue is alive and healing.
However, given the intensity of pain, the area is likely infected from the dirt.
Hence, you should consider prescription antibiotic course.
Tetatus booster also recommended if not given within last 10 years.
Also you should apply a sterile dressing over the wound to prevent any contamination.
Hence it is better to see your doctor or go to the hospital whichever earlier.
