Cystic Acne Dent.Hole in head

Patient

Q: I recently had cystic acne on my forehead. I went to a dermatologist and they injected it with steroids. After about a week all of the "stuff" came out and it is completely down now.

It has now been two weeks and I have a pretty large and very deep hole. It doesn't look like the skin is coming back together at all, or scabbing. Inside the hole looks like you can see my skull or something. I have used Neosporin and bandaids. My wedding is in one week, what should I do?
