Dear risriss 1980 The description whch you have given it sounds
like your baby has got herpes simplex. This is caused by Herpes Simplex Virus.(HSV)
Make sure he does not tauch those with his fingers as it may infect the fingers
leading to whitlow also it may infect eyes. put him mittons. As regards treatment
please take him to Paeditrician who may prescribe antiviral antibiotics. kindest regards
