Help! tried to pop a spot but it backfired

I just tried to pop a spot which was brewing for 4 days. very small pustule/poaple... didnt really have that much of a head (i know, I am an idiot!!) but it hurt loads and looked like one I could pop cleanly...

...no such luck... the top layer of skin came off but there was o head and now its exposed, red, raw and not poppped... i have put some BP on iot and a band aid and planing to go pff to bed... but is that not wise? what can i do to minimise further damage

I know its hard and it might sound like its a bit late now but literally just leave it. Let your body react to it and get a good night sleep. Sleep is the best healing process for anything your body faces. Maybe even the band aid isnt best- let the air get to it and dry it out.
