This Baby With Cold Sores Will Make You Think Twice About Letting People Kiss Your Little One

September 28, 2015 1 min read

Babies tend to get a lot of attention, from family, friends and strangers alike. And while parents like to be as loving and open-minded as they can about people's comments, concerns, love and affection, they equally want to protect their baby from any harm that may come there way. Claire Henderson, mother of baby girl Brooke, posted a story to Facebook recently detailing the terrifying experience of having to hospitalize her little one after getting cold sores, which Henderson believes she got from a simple kiss. cold sore “Before three months old, a baby cannot fight the herpes virus," Henderson wrote. "If a baby contracts this, it can cause liver and brain damage and lead to death. The moral of the story is DO NOT let anyone kiss your newborn’s mouth, even if they don't look like they have a cold sore—85 percent of the population carry the virus." Women’s health expert Jennifer Wider, M.D. confirms that this is, indeed, true. “It can be very serious,” says Wider. “Newborn babies can become sick rapidly with high fevers and seizures and become non-responsive and lethargic. This case shows us that we should not allow anyone, including family members or siblings to kiss a newborn on the lips." Has this happened to your child before?
