  • It's always a good idea to go to the doctor if you're not sure- better safe than sorry. But if she is acting fine, does not have a fever, and does seem to be bothered when you press on the area, than I wouldn't worry yourself over it, especially if its the same on both sides. My baby has something similar, it's just their chest. they will have little bumps, even as infants, and if they are a little "chubbier" than they'll be even bigger.
    Good luck with the appt., congrats on your baby :)

  • go to her doc, and dont mess with it. there is nothing you can do for her and you could actually make it more irritated. good luck

  • My son had a cyst as a baby (on his forehead), so I would have it checked out. Dermoid cysts generally are found around the mid line of the body (up and down, not side to side) and when their bodies form and come together, skin cells can get trapped and cause a dermoid cyst. It could be nothing, but you should have it checked out anyway.
