Help with a "post-pop" pimple

Patient

Q: I had a pimple that I tried popping, it didn't work so last night I used neosporin and vaseline to eliminate the chance of infection. Now it is flat, little larger than pea sized, but BRIGHT RED, there is also a dull white scab/circle/mark in the center. Please help me, I go on vacation tomorrow and I am extremely self conscious about this.... How can I either a) reduce the redness or b) get rid of it altogether (As fast as possible) Thank you.
