This seems to bother me but not her - still am worried it is or could become infected. Is there anything I should do about it?

No, I wouldnt have thought so. Dont worry babies arent as vulnerable as they seem!

Maybe you could try putting some breastmilk on it so it doesnt get infected but that is just what I would do, I dont know if it would actually work!

Can you nibble it off gently?
