    No, just a barrier cream. I'm getting mum to pick one up from a chemist on her way home from work, she's going to speak to the pharmacist for me.

    Has the Dr suggested what course of action to take if the swab comes back positive for herpes?

    Be careful if you are breastfeeding her they are highly contagious. I don't know if you could actually get them on your nipple - but I get cold sores and they break out all over my face, I think from when I was a kid I touched them and then touched other parts of my face.

    Be careful what sort of creams you apply. Don't use anything along the lines of vaseline as a barrier cream - I have found it "feeds" my cold sores and makes them worse.
    My understanding is that the cold sore/ herpes is highly contagious through the skin. I'm not sure about what the risk factors are to you (of contracting it) if the baby feeds. Did your dr talk about this?

    Be very careful if you see a sore anywhere around her eyes. It can potentially be quite dangerous, so take her back to the dr if you notice any in that area. The infection can be very nasty for the cornea, and result in long term vision damage. Definitely not trying to scaremonger with those comments - just saying that's something to keep a close eye on if you weren't already doing so.

    Hope they heal up fast for her.

    ETA - Sorry, just looked back and saw you were already on to the bit about the eyes!

    I think you should be going to the ED. Herpes/cold sores can be fatal in small children. Does the Dr you saw have any knowledge/experience with babies?? I'm a bit shocked at the blasé-ness from both the Dr and you TBH.

    I would say I'm not trying to alarm you, but I am. Those sores looks horrible and need more than a barrier cream.

    Yeah, agree with Californication. Herpes in little babies is serious. I really think you need more than a barrier cream. I would be going to ED and after reading that link she has posted that babies require hospitalisation I would let that guide you.

    Wow.. Your Dr only prescribed a barrier cream?! I'd be finding a new Dr!!

    I agree with PP's, take your bub to the hospital asap.

    Would a barrier cream even be safe around a newborns mouth?!
