Hi Terri, I am hoping that I read correctly and that this can count as my 2nd follow up question, if not please let me know. Here we are a few months later from my last incident where I was concerned about transmission to my son. I have still had no active cold sore but again while talking a nap and with my son even though it didn’t start out this way and he was in a co sleeper in the bed, I woke to find his face pressed against my lip and this time it was his closed eye. All I can think is in my sleep I must have pulled us together to cuddle him. He has had watery eyes due to clogged ducts and I don’t know again how long my lips were pressed against his closed eye or if he had opened them at any point. Is it possible to transmit this way. I already take such precautions in not kissing him and keeping my lips away from his face. I now I feel like I can’t even cuddle him. If this happens how dangerous could this be for him? Will he go blind? He is almost 4 months old now. All I do is worry.
