Thanks for writing to us.

I understand your concern.

Cold sores caused by antibody determines the outcome of infection in newborn.

I suggest you to get your baby examined by pediatrician for proper assessment.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any other question I would be glad to help.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless!!
