100Level, Nigeria.
It has been reported that a 4 weeks old baby is fighting for his life after her was diagonised with Herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1), which is known as the “kiss of death,” which almost caused him to lose sight in one eye. It has been revealed that the baby contracted this deadly disease after being kissed at a christening in the U.k.
White told Caters News Agency that his 21 year old mother alongside her baby attended another baby’s christening where the baby was passed around to multiple relatives and friends, who were all kissing and hugging him.
About a week later, his eye started going a little bit red. It started swelling and getting blisters, so we ended up taking him to the doctors,” White said. The baby is said to have received the anti-viral drugs for two weeks, an hour a time, three hours a day
He spent two and a half months in the hospital recovering from the disease. Doctors have instructed that he will have to receive the anti-viral drug for 9 more months, after a relapse in March 2019.
It has been discovered that children will often contract HSV-1 through early contact with an infected adult.

They then carry the virus with them for the rest of their lives especially when a child is a baby/toddler and preschool-age. These years are filled with new experiences, like a first playdate or first tricycle.

A child’s first cold sore Infection with HSV-1 can occur through kissing and sharing the same utensils or lip balm with other people. The virus spreads quickly when an infected person is experiencing an outbreak. It is also possible to contract genital herpes from HSV-1 if someone, who had oral sex with another person, had cold sores during that time.
Antiviral medication is always advised because it helps to lower the intensity and frequency of such outbreaks. It may come in oral form (pills) or applied as a cream. For severe outbreaks, medication may also be administered by injection.
Certain stimuli can trigger an outbreak. The best prevention is to avoid direct physical contact with other people. Don’t share any items that can pass the virus around, such as cups, towels, silverware, clothing, makeup, or lip balm and wash your hands thoroughly.
Doctor’s however may also decide to administer one or more antiviral drugs, which can help to reduce the risk of spreading the virus from infected persons to others.

Would you allow strangers kiss your new born baby?
