Help!! Cyst or pustule burst

Hello All,

question: I normally do not get breakouts, but after stressing myself the last few months, I get about one cyst per month.

Anyway, I got a large white headed inflamed pimple last week ( made worse by dry skin from the extreme cold Canadian weather). I put BP on it intermittently and let it be. I woke up this morning and noticed it looked a little red( possibly had bled over night on the edge of the pimple. I then washed my face and the big head came off. It was bloody and left a gaping hole that still STINGS an hour later. I wasn’t rough with it at all because i’m terrified of scarring. Now, I don’t know what to do. What do I put on it and how do I help it heal?

TLDR: large white headed pimple that I had for about a week  ( maybe a cyst) head came off while gently washing it. Hurts a lot and has a gaping bloody hole. How do I heal it and prevent a scar? Any help is greatly appreciated thank you so much.
