Pediatrician 's  Response
when you use the word boil we assume that pus has been formed. Once pus has been formed it has to come out, either naturally or breaking it with a sterile needle or blade ( which doctors will do).
Boil means there is infections. Infection means there has to a source. who is giving the child infection. An adult will have enough resistance power, so they may not show evidence of infection as boil. With unclean hands if they lift the baby they pass on the infections. Why the boil on the buttocks. Diapers have to be changed once in 4 hours. If not then the skin becomes wet and serves as medium for the bacteria to go grow. If the area is wiped vigorously, then skin may get eroded and the bacteria in the adult hands will go there. Particularly if the adult has the habit of picking the nose
In conclusion
Hands clean
Diaper frequent change
No new unwashed dress.
