Bathing with baby

Recommended Posts

softpink

I was wondering if it is safe for me to bath with my daughter?? I haven't but would like to. I am unsure if there is any risk to her. If there is ANY risk to her, I will not do it. I wanted to get some words of advice from you all.

Thank!

Yes, there is some risk. Some say virus survives longer in water - some others say soap kills it - I would be very cautious here as I wound kill myself if I did anything that puts my child at any risk to get herpes from me. Please do not bathe with your daughter

softpink,

As with anything in life there are risks, I do believe that bathing with your daughter is a small risk to her, but my opinion on that would be why temp fate in anyway with this virus it is tricky. I just would not take the chance . I know that if you had an active outbreak that risk would definately go up alot. By what percent I do not know. I wish you well and take care.

I have always looked forward to bathing with my children as my mother did with me when I was little, however... I will not. I would never take the risk of giving this aweful virus to her!!!!! Thanks for your answers!!! I am sad, but didn't want to tempt anything if there was even a tenth of a chance she may get this!

My dr said it was okay to bath with my son-but then my general dr just a few days ago said I DID not have herpes on my nipples, and the next day the obgyn said I did, so....

I don't have herpes on my nipples, I have it on my genitals.

Don't know if there is a difference. I will have to run this question past my doc and my daughters pediatrician.

      So ur saying the herbalife was the key?? Olive leaf extract and pro biotic are good? How many mgs of Lysine did you take a day?

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
