Do not worry. This boil if recurrent & in the same place, appears to be cystic in nature. It will either go away spontaneously or can be excised completely under local anaesthesia by your local surgeon or competent GP or dermatologist on the ground (as per the requisities of your health system in your country). It appears a minor issue, easily sorted. Relax..all will be well soomn Wish you & your baby continued good health!. Do hope this answers your query & we can close this query & do give us your feedback if time permits. Cheers & Godspeed!
