wounds won't heal.. suggestions?

I'm currently on spiro and this has cut down most of my acne (still the odd pimple) but this wouldn't bother me if my old ones would heal...
Along with spiro it's currently winter in my part of the world so my face is very dry. Also I find every year older I get the slower things heal... I'm now nearly 24.
Now, I don't mean those red marks that stick around, I've come to accept these and know that they will go away, but I mean like the scabby bit after a pimples finished (yuk sorry). I've had one on my nose for about three months now and that's not good, along with others. I've been taking vitamins (C, E, Zinc) and have started putting on a "healing gel" on the affected areas. Any other ideas? I'm sure if I stopped washing my face they'd heal heaps quicker but I'm way too scared to try that! Plus how do you wash off make-up then?

I'm so sick of acne.

Chemical peels would probably really help those "left overs" from old acne.
