    You have age in her favour, her immune system is more developed than a newborn. I'd ring health direct and check.

    When my ds1was little, maybe less than a year? He started getting really ill, stopped taking his bottles, wouldn't eat or drink anything, high fevers, malaise etc. it started getting bad and then he started literally pouring blood from his mouth. I was utterly panicked! I took him to hospital and it ended up being his first exposure to mouth ulcers. He eas sick for weeks and put on anti virals and couldn't even drink hardly anything for a week. All for mouth ulcers!

    OP, tell your family straight out, no kissing the baby until he/she is older!

The blister on his lip was a nearly healed pink color, whereas the nasal lesion was scabbed. My little boy was also grabbing at his beard and is a profound thumb sucker.


    I am truly making myself sick with worry as to my 11 month old baby's risk of developing HSV-1. He has a habit of rubbing his eyes, so in turn would be a high risk of eye infection if he contracted the virus. I feel so terrible for not having been aware enough to stop my cousin.


    I would truly appreciate any feedback from you all.


    Warm regards

    Omg this thread is so scary

    My DH and his whole family get them and although they are so careful in a pp it says the virus lives for 6 hours so if DH drinks something and DD picks his bottle or cup up and puts it to her mouth hours later she can get this virus?

    Is it contagious before it breaks out?

    Can people carry the virus without break outs? I don't get them and dd kisses my lips all day long what if I am a carrier with no break outs?

    Subbing anyway this thread is very good to show hubby and all the people that get snotty when I have a strictly no visitor rule after birth at the hospital!

    We are

    Cold sores are only something I encountered when I met hubby as growing up my parents were SO strict on lip kissing or sharing food and drink. I had never even seen a cold sore until I met hubby and his family. It's scary laned so it's good you are asking all the questions you are. My old thread was like your one and I forgot I even wrote it hahaha glad it came up again because I was thinking of being a bit more lenient with this baby but stuff that! No visitors it is again and everyone keep your dam lips off my newborn heheh

    The virus can be shed for 3 weeks after the lesion has disappeared, that's why it's so contagious.

    'Cultural' European kisses or not, you can and should protect your kids from herpes. If you know that they are coming, or are quick enough - do the swoop and grab and hold your bubba. Tactically have bubba in a hat or hoodie if that helps fend them off! Let them kiss you on the head if you have to. Op who mentioned handing out masks, that is a great idea too. Your kids health is more important than a relatives ego!
