Popped pimple near lip. Applied toothpaste. How to cure?

I had a pimple near the corner of my lip and popped it. After that i put toothpaste on the popped pimple and went to bed. The following morning i removed the dry toothpaste and decided to remove the scab that had been left there by the pimple. Now it looks like a small, barley open scab and has a dark almost brownish red spot extending from it. It also may be useful to note that it does not hurt or itch or tingle. The only time i feel pain is when i yawn, the pain is very minimal.
