Question Obsessive picking = raw open pit on nose

It might sound silly, but what is the normal healing process? Let it scab? Wash it off? I picked at a pimple, might have been a cyst, and now I have this open pit on my nose. Embarrassing. And now, I keep picking at the scab. I try not to and then....I do. Day one there was a little pus, but not now. Usually I pull out the white thingie in the middle and it goes away. Now there are just more plugs in a big hole.

Q1. What is the normal healing time?
Q2. Let it scab over?
Q3. Does using neosporin keep it "wet" and therefore not healing?
Q4. Dry it out with alcohol
Q5. Bandaid?

Please don't say "just don't pick" this is a compulsion I've had for years and years and years and it flared up. This time I'm a little worried.
