I heard it can be really dangerous for newborns, I actually read about a few days old baby that died because of it eventhough she didn't have a coldsore on her mouth.. It is a virus that stays with you forever and it is very contegious so the longer you can keep them away from it the better I say

Especially if your child is a NEW BORN. When our daughters were young children I had child care in our home. One of my families had a child that had been accidently exposed to a cold sore and almost died. If your child is older there is always the chance of exposer but I can not give accurate data.
