This is Portsmouth mom Amy Stinton and her infant Oliver.

Cheek to cheek only if you MUST.

Oliver was a healthy baby until he was kissed by someone with an open cold sore. Everyone loves to kiss babies, but once you see this picture posted after Oliver contracted herpes, you'll want to keep your lips to yourself.

This is what happens 2 babies when been in contact with a coldsore. Oliver now has the herpes virus and will have this for life. Think before you kiss a baby next time.

Haven't we learned our lesson about kissing babies when we have cold sores? It was only a year ago we saw the same thing happen baby Brook, and it almost killed her. Herpes can be fatal to an infant under three months old.

And now that it's election season, there's never been a better time to get the message out. You hear this, presidential candidates? I know you love to kiss babies for the publicity, but think about the children. I'm looking at you, Bill.
