Just over a month ago Claire Henderson gave birth to a beautiful baby girl who she named Brooke. Like most new parents, they had many visitors who wanted to see the new baby. Unfortunately for Claire and Brooke one of the visitors was a herpes carrier. Herpes can only be contracted by mouth to mouth contact. Now Claire is trying to warn as many people as possible about how deadly it is for infants if they get cold sores. Brooke developed cold sores all over her mouth and the back of her throat and is doing good now.
