So this past weeks cold sore outbreak has been the hardest to deal with so far, my toddler just don't understand NO and tries to be sneaky about everything...

She got a hold of my cup, luckily it was for less than a second, she hasn't shown any signs yet from that. But I think this one is what might do it in.

I caught her in my bathroom brushing her teeth with my toothbrush.... I last used it 12 hours prior to her obtaining it and using it. I always lye it face down to drip dry into the sink. I just need some views on the likely hood of a transmission rate from the toothbrush to her please.

It wasn't used for 12 hours she used it at 1pm I last used it at midnight.

I'm irritated with myself and her, mainly myself because I have this crap, but it seems like during the outbreak she's doing things because I won't allow her to, I normally brush my teeth with her, and during the past week I won't out of fear of transmission, she brushes her teeth on her own right now, and cups if she gets ahold of them I normally scold her and take it away, but I won't even allow her within reach of my cups in the last week, I'm just praying to god she doesn't get this, it's the one virus I'll go at all costs to keep her from, yet it's the hardest.

Herpes cannot survive on material things, soaps or towel. Read from our section "Our Network" located ^^ top of the forum page.

Oh and honey, once she starts school and learns to hug other children or kiss other's, she may be exposed then. We are parents and do all we can, but as beautiful children they will grow and learn,no matter what we do. Hugs Aces xo

ps, don't scold her, teach her butterfly kisses. Throw kiss in air say "catch it it's a butterfly kiss" then both of you have fun.

Agreed - you let that toothbrush dry for 12 hours? Then odds are, if she gets it, it won't be from that.

The more you tell a kid "no" the more they want to do it, as you can tell.

Exactly as Mell said ;) ! I'm a mom I believe in picking your battles. Now if she was jamming something in a toaster, then yes scolding would be appropriate. Don't make her paranoid about this. After she starts school, many things she will come into contact with that you won't have control over. Locking our children in a safe box under our wings only last for so long honey. :itllbeok: Aces
