The little boy not suffers from bouts of herpes and will need to deal with this embarrassing disease for the remainder of his life.
The young mother shared the tragic photo of Oliver on September 14 with the simple caption:
“This is what happens 2 babies when been in contact with a coldsore. Oliver now has the herpes virus and will have this for life. Think before you kiss a baby next time.”
Since sharing the news with her friends, thousands have reposted the image to spread the warning message with other parents.
Hundreds of people have commented including:
“Oh poor poor little darling. I hope there’s something that can help him”
“Omg bless him , Def needs to be highlighted the severity of kissing with coldsores”
“Oh my God that’s horrendous. …don’t think people realise how dangerous herpes is!!”
Although Amy must have been angry with the person who infect Oliver for life, she was able to forgive the perpetrator. It was an accident after all. Nevertheless, now you know not to kiss someone, especially a baby, when you have a cold sore. You can inadvertently pass on herpes.
Next time you come in contact with a baby, make sure your mouth and lips are clear of cold sores before going in for a smooch.
