So for the last few months my back and shoulders have been relatively clear besides blackheads and whatnot but last night I came across a little cyst that looked just about ready to pop... Could I have been more wrong... After minutes of scratching I managed to pop it but it was definitely not worth it for the damage I did to my skin. I'm left with a pretty damn big scab and I was wondering what I could do to speed up the healing process as in worried that neosporin will just clog my pores.

sounds painful.  You could try grapeseed oil, jojoba oil, or vaseline and then keep it covered with a bandaid.  All of those will speed healing with out cloging pores. Good luck

Just let it heal on its own and dont scratch the scab off ,it will fall by itself....sometimes the best remedy is to let it run its course instead of trying a quick fix which could make things worst.

Put some Aquaphor on the scab and a band aid. Keeping wounds moist/closed always encourages faster, better healing.
