Can babies catch cold sores?

it's passed by contact, usually saliva, so yes kissing, sharing cups etc. Babies can defo get them. Ask your grandmother to stay away!Some adults develop immunity. Diet certainly helps fight viral susceptibility. I've never had a cold sore in my life.Scientists recently stated that it would take 60 servings of spinach today to equal one serving in 1949. Our bodies are starving. Researchers now feel that this may be a major reason why chronic diseases are epidemic today. We simply have weak immune systems. I believe this is why there are more people getting cold sores today - and with increasing frequency.Hopefully I have helped you understand the importance of taking a daily vitamin and mineral regimen. Simply put, it helps build better and more powerful anti-bodies. Many people today, using this method, are reducing and preventing cold sores in their lives. You can too.http://www.worldwidehealth.com/healt...old-Sores.html

Yup they can. It's a herpes virus. No contact is best to avoid any exposure I mean no contact in terms of kissing etc - not no touching the baby all tgtha haha

It is contagious, my DD caught it from me middle of last year and the first bout is a nightmare, blisters break out all over their mouth and in their mouth. I tried my hardest to be hygienic with her, but with DP away working meant that I couldn't not touch her. She did get some antibiotics for the first lot, since then she has had a few (still trying to work out what sets them off) and also been around other children and none of them seem to have picked it up.
I know when I went to the Drs with her they told me that lots of people have the virus but some people get the virus and it will lay dormant and never break out and then there are others that will get numerous breakouts.
I hope all is good and she doesn't come down with it, I thought it was the end of the world the first time, and now I just deal with them when they pop up and treat them straight away so they don't hang around to long.
If you have any other questions just ask.

You know if she caught it off DH then ok but if she catches it off an outsider I will be so mad!! This is not the first time. A cafe owner took her for cuddles yesterday to and he had them to I mean are you kidding me?
So if she were to break out would it be in the next few days?

my grandmother had no blisters I couldn't even see it. It was when it was pointed out I thought great. So is it only with blisters that it can be passed? Gawd I can ask a million questions but there's no point if she gets it she gets it I can't do much can I
Thanks guys !!!

I am so upset not at the fact that DD may catch it but at the inconsiderate a holes that kiss babies with an infection!

As PP's have said, yes they can. You are probably very likely to have the virus - 90% of the adult population has it but only around 30% percent of those have outbreaks of blisters.
How old is your baby? Usually babies have antibodies in their system from their mother till around 6 months old.
If your baby does develop any symptoms (they can be flu like before blisters appear), take them to the doctor ASAP as the virus can be very harmful to young children.
I've looked into this a lot as unfortunately I get them all the time and I was so worried about passing them on to my children.
