It depends on how much saliva the baby is bringing out. If you are changing bibs 4 -5 times in an hour, then you need to see a paediatrician. But if not that frequent, it could still be a normal development. If you are not sure and worried, please see a paediatrician.

The commonest cause/source of all these boils for babies is from HANDS OF ADULTS that carry babies. Especially in Nigeria, we do not wash our hands routinely and yet everyone will just carry babies with their unwashed hands full of staph!!! The bacteria in your hands will not hurt you but for a baby whose immunity is just maturing, it can cause all these soft tissue and skin infection. I used to tell my mums when going home, only mum and one other assistant who washes her hands frequently should be allowed to carry and touch babies!!!
