Baby left fighting for life after catching herpes from kiss
A newborn baby almost died after contracting herpes in his eye after being kissed at a christening.
Now she’s on a mission to spread awareness and warn people not to kiss newborns, who can die from the disease.
He almost went blind in one eye and two-and-a-half months in the hospital recovering but is now on the road to recovery.
The phone sales agent said: ‘We went to a christening where friends were holding and kissing him – it could have been any of them.
Noah, who is now nine months old, didn’t have a high temperature and was eating as he should which put Ashleigh’s mind at rest.
A few days later he came back positive for HSV-1, also known as the cold sore virus.
