Exclamation Hedgehog Cyst?? Exploded?!!

Hi! I just posted yesterday thinking my new hedgehog (adopted her from people who were moving and could not take her, seems to have been treated poorly) had an ingrown quill or maybe a fungal infection. I was planning on taking her to a vet on Friday. I did a bunch of research online and took her out to look at the bump to see if i could see a quill. Then all the the sudden it burst open looking like some sort of cyst. I have absolutely no idea what to do, I clean it off with warm water with Q-Tips and i heard to put neosporin on it but I am not sure. She has kinda an open "hole" in her back. She seemed to be in no pain and is acting normal. ***I'm posting a picture below but warning its very graphic***

That's needs to be seen by a vet asap. It has to be very painful and it looks infected. Untreated infections can lead to sepsis which is very hard to treat.
