Odd "growth" on dogs paw/pad

Noticed this on my dog's paw the other day. I have scheduled an appt with my vet but waiting on confirmation from vet. I have been soaking his foot in peroxide a couple times a day to help clean it out. Any ideas what this is and how to help ease his discomfort? He keeps licking it and I caught him chewing it and making it bleed today.

Definitely needs to be checked out. The yellow seems to be an abscess (puss filled pocket). Your dog might have stepped on something that got embedded and infected. I would guess that your vet will drain it.
discontinue the peroxide it can delay healing. This scrub it available at walgreens and walmart. Clean with it until you get to the vet.
