My 4 month old sons forehead often feels cold when i kiss him... the skin around his eyes is also often very red is this normal? Could it be SIDS?
Is he acting well?: If your son is eating well, is active and alert for a few hours a day and is developing normally then you can relax. If not, he should be checked by his physician. SIDS is, unfortunately, a diagnosis made after a child has been lost to unexplained crib death, not a diagnosis in a living child.

If he has it and you do not, best to avoid kissing and other direct contact, e.g. no oral sex on you. You could have a blood test. If already positive for HSV1 (as are half of all people), you're immune, can't catch it again. ...Read more
