From a mathematical point, log(Inf) = Inf.

biologically these are significant proteins which are unique to one particular sample

If you don't want/can't use Inf, you need to come up with a replacement value. For visualization purposes, I guess any value that's higher than the max of the rest of the data could do. What to do really depends on what you want to achieve.
