Picking Consequences

I am not going to pick from this point on (hopefully), but i have around a quarter square inch on my forehead where i picked over and over and never let it heal. Now it is dark red/greyish and I am wondering how to make it heal/how to make it less noticeable.

Should I put the derms acne cream on it (dries it out/benzyl peroxide ish, .1 %) or should i put vitamin e on it (I have only put vitamin e or antibiotic ointments on my face for weeks) or should i leave it alone? Help please! Also, when should i start using the derm cream again as opposed to vitamin e (on the rest of my face).

edit- it feels rougher than the rest of my skin, could it be a scab? if so, what should i do with it? If its just a scar, what should i do?
