Infected Blackhead healing time??

The other night I noticed a black head on my cheek. I usually never get blackheads so I wasn't aware that you weren't suppose to try and pop it or pick at it. Anyway, I ended up irritating it and it has become a kind of dark red. I put benzyl peroxide on it and I tried to leave it alone since I messed with it. I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to heal it? & I was also hoping someone could give me an idea of how long something like this takes to heal?

Below I included  a picture. To me it feels like its almost a scab and it hurts to touch. It doesn't look like there is any black center unless I get super close in the mirror. It also doesn't stick out like a pimple its just kind of a dark red mark on my cheek and its rather annoying to look at. Please help if you have any suggestions.
