Without being able to examine your baby it is not possible for me to be sure about this cyst on your baby's abdomen. Is this cyst on her umbilicus or on the skin of her abdomen? This is not due to an allergy. It may be due to an infection. In any case it seems to have cleared up by itself and with you using a bit of dettol to clean it.
