There is no doubt that the herpes simplex virus is contagious, it is not for nothing that such a large number of people are its carrier. The question of prevention remains open, as well as its necessity in modern conditions. Is it possible to prevent the virus when almost everyone already has it? When it comes to an infant, everyone will agree that prevention is of great importance. This will help to avoid serious complications that the herpes simplex virus can lead to. Mom or dad, whose lips have rashes, should approach the child only in a gauze mask, especially during the feeding period or to swaddle the baby. Washing the CC will help to avoid the accumulation of the virus on the surface of the skin. Up to 4 years old, a child shouldn’t swim in the pool.
