Gooey Red Mess on My Leg

Quick question for you. I think that motorcycle riding is a pretty manly thing so hopefully someone either does this or can answer my question. Either I dreamed this up or there really is some sort of cream or topical solution that can help speed the healing. (specifically of road rash)

I took a very nasty spill on my mountain bike today and my right leg from my instep to my mid thigh is a monster scab. I skidded so far on the pavement that it shredded my shoelaces off and the first few layers of skin. Any ideas please let me know.

Neosporin (sp?)

Also MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) lotion is really great for healing up the skin without scarring. You can probably find it at most health food stores.
