My son keeps picking his scabs!

How do get my 6yr old son to stop picking his spots, scrapes & scabs? They're not healing because he keeps picking them! I keep putting sudocrem on them in case they're itchy, and I've tried motivating him to stop by a reward chart and bribing etc. Also, how do I get him to stop picking his nose and eating it?!
Ideas please?

Don't let it get dry, a wet/moist scab heals faster then a dry one. put neosporin or an antibiotic cream and bandaid on it a couple times a day

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
