Lucy almost killed her 11-day-old son with the “kiss of death” that every mother gives her child! PICTURES

Every new parent, and anyone who sees a newborn baby, instinctively wants to touch, cuddle and kiss it. Yes, but it turned out to be fatal. Proof is the shocking story of 11-day-old Oliver Miller, who was almost killed by his mother Lucy without her even realizing it.

The newborn almost lost his life because of the so-called “kiss of death”.

23-year-old Lucy gave birth to little Oliver on August 3. Everything was fine and so her husband of 25 years took his wife and their child home so they could enjoy happy moments with the new member of their family.

A few days later, however, the parents discovered that their baby did not look well. “At first we thought it was from the formula, so we changed it. That same day I noticed a freckle on his back – I didn’t pay attention to it. Days after that, I saw a similar one on his belly, and he started acting like he had a virus – he refused to eat and drink liquids,” recalls Lucy, who, like her husband, constantly hugged and kissed little Oliver.

They decided to take him to Hull City A&E, East York. The doctors immediately ran full tests on him.

“Then began the beginning of a terrifying eight days. Exactly on the eighth day, they found that he had first degree herpes simplex. The doctors said that the so-called “kiss of death” was to blame for what happened, recalls the horrified mother.

Doctors explained to her that this occurs when a person who has had a sore or sore caused by herpes touches or kisses the young child who does not yet have a good immune system.

“We were shocked. We had no idea where it could have been infected until I remembered that shortly before giving birth I had oral herpes. A very minor canker sore, which almost killed my child”, says Lucy through tears.

Fortunately, the doctors gave Oliver a blood transfusion, prepared a serious treatment plan, and after 21 days in the hospital, he was discharged without any danger to his life. During that time, they constantly tested him for sepsis and other viruses, as they have to watch to see if the herpes has spread to his brain, which could cause meningitis. The little boy will also need to take antibiotics for the next six months to fight off the insidious virus.

Lucy and Jazz decided to tell Oliver’s scary story to protect all parents of newborns, and to warn people who have a habit of kissing and touching other people’s babies: “Be careful. For you, it may be a simple mouth or body wound, but for small babies, it can be deadly. Don’t kiss and touch them carelessly”.

Lucy and her partner Jazz Miller, 25, are sharing Oliver’s story in a bid to raise awareness of the dangers of kissing children if you have a cold sore.

Doctors also warn that the herpes virus can easily be transmitted to babies and young children through something as simple as a kiss and touch, and prove fatal.

Herpes is a common infection caused by the herpes simplex virus that causes painful blisters on the mouth or genitals, which is transmitted through sexual contact. It is a chronic, long-term condition that can be activated at any time without you even suspecting it – it is there, in your body, regardless of whether there is an external manifestation or not.
