Open Sore on Scrotum?

I had a red spot on my scrotum, that I (stupidly) tried to pop like it was a blood blister. apparently, I had been so rough with it I now am missing a top layer of skin about a half an inch in diameter where the dark red spot WAS. the spot is gone, but now I have a painful, open sore on my scrotum. I have been boiling it with peroxide and using a triple anti biotic ointment on it for 2 days - it looks a little infected, like a 3rd degree burn - yellowish at the affected area, red around the affected area - swollen - is there ANYTHING I need to do or not do to help speed up the healing process?
