Pimple/blood blister left deep red scab

I made the mistake of popping what I think may have been a blood blister where previously there was a cyst. It has left a deep red scab. What do I do?!

There's not much you can do now. Leave it alone. It may take a while for it to go away, but don't pick at it and leave it be.

Next time you have a cystic acne lesion, you can go see the dermatologist for a quick cortisone shot. Even your regular physician should be able to give you one.
