Sebaceous cyst on head has become infected. What can I do for relief til my doc appt in a week?

I have a sebaceous cyst on my head. Recently it has been very sore and tender and I believe it is infected. I have an appt with a surgeon next Thursday, the soonest appt they had, to have it removed. What can I do until then for relief? I've been taking ibuprofen every 6 hours and apply a heat pack 2 times a day. Right now the pain  is bad and I cannot sleep.
