    I'm exactly the same, a carrier identified by blood test. Not surprising really as both my parents get cold sores. I haven't been cautious myself, but I'd never let anyone with a cold sore kiss my toddler and new baby (when it arrives).

    I do understand it's a common virus and to each their own about how they feel about it. But for me it comes down to when you believe it's contagious (before blister/tickle or only blister) and if you feel you can trust somebody to be sensible.

    'The virus can be transmitted at any time through close contact with a person's saliva or genital secretions, although a person is most contagious during an outbreak.'

    I would be extremely worried too if my mum constantly had cold sores and didn't take vigilant precautions to not spread to my baby.
    I'm fine with cuddles, as I am with my parents. Nobody has tried to kiss him, I don't think any of our friends would to be honest. DH's mom didn't kiss him when she visited and I never asked her not to, but she's a pediatric nurse so would have her own thoughts.

    I've only just thought to ask people not to kiss him because of another cold sore thread popping up--But I'm super vigilant with myself. I'm fine with telling our friends not to (although I feel they wouldn't) and being that my parents are about to visit and I know they both get them, mom frequently, they were logical ones to make a point in asking.

    Eta: actually surprised I haven't thought to ask others not to kiss him as I know I'd say something if I saw them lean in since I wouldn't know their vaccination status. I have asked some friends to wash their hands.

    Sorry I misread your post
    If you think your mother would think too much of kissing your child even if she had a cold sore, or could feel one coming up, I completely understand your decision
