Default Opinions Please! I think my 8 month old has a sebaceous cyst.

I got my puppy out of her crate this morning and I noticed right away a marble size lump on her back paw! I shaved the area to get a better look to see if it was an injury. No puncture wounds that I could see from rough play with my other dogs and no insect bite either.
I immediately started researching on google. I think it may be a cyst. What do you think?
I called her vet and set up an appointment for Monday, but how should I care for it in the mean time.

I have soaked it in warm salt water and applied antibiotic cream but wanted to know if anyone else has some home remedies to keep my girl comfy.

Thanks for your help! Here is a picture of her paw!
