Neonatal herpes is a herpes infection in a young child. The younger the child, the more vulnerable it is to the harmful effects of infection.
According to the NHS, herpes can be very serious for a young child whose immune system is not fully developed to fight off the virus.
Neonatal herpes, which is rare in the UK, is caused by the herpes simplex virus. This virus is very common and causes cold sores and genital ulcers in adults.
Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) transmitted through genital, anal, and oral contact. Treatment at a sexual health clinic can help.
Neonatal herpes can be prevented by following a few simple tips.
How does a newborn baby catch herpes?
During pregnancy and childbirth
If you had genital herpes for the first time during the last 6 weeks of pregnancy, your newborn baby is at risk of herpes.
There is a risk of passing the infection on to your baby if you gave birth genitally.
This risk is much lower if you have had genital herpes before.
The herpes simplex virus can be transmitted to a baby through herpes if a person with herpes kisses the baby.
The herpes virus can also be passed to your baby if you have a blister caused by a cold sore on your breast and you feed your baby with the affected breast or expressed breast milk from the affected breast.
The child is most at risk of herpes infection in the first 4 weeks after birth.
If you have cold sores, you should not kiss your baby to reduce the risk of spreading the infection.
Cold sores and other blisters caused by the herpes virus are most contagious when they burst. They remain contagious until completely cured.
