You should put an icepack on it to get the swelling to go down and take some pain medication if it hurts. Then go see a doctor a.s.a.p.

You do know that handling a turtle exposes you to salmonella ? Normally, as long as you washed your hands after handling them. Since you got bitten I'd be concerned. You need to seek medical attention.
