4 doctors agree
In brief: Bactroban (mupirocin)
Agree with not manipulating the sore.
However, i recommend bactroban (mupirocin) or Mupirocin ointment which requires a prescription to make sure staph aureus is treated.

In brief: Bacitracin
Don't rub it or pick it.
Get some Bacitracin ointment and with a clean finger put some on the sore 4 to 5 times a day. If not better within a week see an ENT doctor.
