If you don’t have a cold sore on your lip, you can certainly kiss your child on her cheek without any worries.
I just had one question about transmission. I don’t kiss my children. Lots of hugs etc but I’ve just chose not to.
My daughter is now 4 years old. If my mother kissed her when she was a baby (with a scabbed over coldsore) how likely is it at this stage that she’ll get one. I know most symptoms appear by 20 days. Could she still get symptoms when she’s older ?
If your daughter was going to get cold sores from her grandmother, you would have noticed it by now, or when it happened. I think it is very unlikely she will all of a sudden get cold sores from this encounter when she is older.
I’m sure in your lifetime there will be huge progress with HSV treatments or cures.
