Oh poor Bella. polka had this happen once, the groomer found it, and it looked just like Bella's. Keep up with the medication and the compress. I am sure it hurts her terribly. she will start feeling better. but honestly the trauma of leaving her with a vet and not in the comfort of her own home could be worse. Now that it is exposed, this should lead to healing. the medication should start working and you will hopefully see improvement in 24 - 48 hrs. I am sure you are doing a wonderful job taking care of her. I feel for you, it is hard to see our girls in pain.
