Son may have cold sore, touching it and then grabbed my leg/underwear up my skirt. I'm 36 wks prego. Worried about herpes and baby. Can I get it?

Son may have cold sore, touching it and then grabbed my leg/underwear up my skirt. I'm 36 wks prego. Worried about herpes and baby. Can I get it?

No cause for worry: Herpes is not by such contact. To be ultra safe, mention this to your obstetrician. If she feels it necessary, you can have a blood test to see if you might already have HSV1; if so, you can't get it again. Until your baby is a month old, it will be important to prevent intimate contact of your baby with your son (e.g. no kissing). Otherwise no worries! . Best wishes for you and your growing family ...Read more

Some counseling might be helpful

I wonder if you're eating properly or if you have heavy periods which could explain some anemia/low iron.
