Last week I woke up with what looked and felt like a mosquito bite on the middle of my top lip, so it wasnt on my face skin at all. It didnt hurt or itch. The next day I woke up and my lip was HUGE. It had completely swollen up. But still no pain, burning or itching. I went to the chemist and they had no idea what it was but they gave me coldsore cream to try anyway. The I went to my friends house and she told me to put stingoes on it, so I did and the swelling went down. After that we thought it must be a bite. It took a few days to heal after that. Got a scab that kept falling off and re-healing.
Today my DD went down for a nap and when she got up she had a red lump under her bottom lip that looks a bit like what I had sad Now I'm petrified that I've passed on coldsores to her, even though I'm not sure that what I had was a coldsore.
Next bit, MIL and SIL both get coldsores and used to kiss DD on the mouth until I told them off for it. Could they have passed the virus to her and then she passed it to me? Even though I got the lump on my lip first? Sorry if its confusing. My partner kisses his mum on the lips sometimes too wacko but hes never had a coldsore. Can you get them from someone when the person kisses you on the mouth when they dont have a coldsore but still carry the virus?
Sorry for long confusing story but I'd be horrified if I have passed on coldsores to my poor baby sad
Any help would be great
