Help! Sick White's Dumpy Tree Frog!

I have a White's Dumpy Tree frog that is turning thirteen this year, and she has always been in pretty excellent health. Today, I was watching her hunt and I saw that she had a huge round lump on her thigh. I took her out to look at her, and it looked like a blister- it was almost translucent and there were some broken capillary looking things on the inside. I took her out of her old viv and put her in a new one that only had some branches to climb on, and a moist towel and some sphagnum moss as flooring, because I thought maybe she had some sort of bacterial infection. She still has a full appetite and is active.

Today, I was checking up on her, and the blister appears to have popped, with a creamy liquid leaking out. Now I am worried about infection, but I don't know what caused the whole thing to begin with! I'm calling the vet tomorrow, but they are closed on weekends.

Any advice or ideas would help so much!
