Where is the boil? You could try hot compresses and see if this will cause it to pop. It may be that you will need antibiotics. In general, there should not be any harm to the baby.

Dont think it will harm baby!
Buy some traxa and but it on and cover with a dressing, it should pop within two days max! After it has popped it will feel so much better!
