Question is there any way to make a scab heal quickly?

i managed to make a scab out of a pimple... the pimple itself is healed... (no pus left in it) however, now there's a scab where the pimple was.... i have major social events this weekend, and was wondering if there is any way to make it go away quicker.... i know i used to use neosporin to prevent a scar and heal properly... but, sometimes that makes it very soft and takes longer to heal..... but, i also don't want the scab to fall off too soon...

any hints??

hiya pal unfortunatley ive found out to my own annoyance that only time can heal these buggers,but if you want to make the scab less noticable and reduce its size by the weekend try using SUDOCREM Cream i dont know if its available though in th U.S if it is rub a small amount into the scab until it dissapears then apply a large amount to totaly cover the scab and leave it there as long as possible ie over night etc etc by the next day you should notice that the redness has gone quite alot and the scab will look like a small cut
Good Luck!!
