Caregiver Coldsore

I just dropped DS off at his Grandma's (my MIL), and I noticed she had cold sores all over her lips.  She pointed it out herself, and mentioned that she coudln't "kiss the baby today".  But she also was holding him and as he moved his head around she would kind of turn toward him with her face and her lips would graze his head.  Even if she isn't kissing him, can any of that get on her hands and transfer to him, anyway?  Sorry to sound so in the dark, I just haven't struggled with cold sores myself, so I don't know anything about them.

As long as she is washing her hands well after touching her face it should be fine. You may want to keep an eye on him once he is home with you though.
