It's unknown who gave 1-year-old Juliano the herpes virus but it's now something this poor little boy will have to live with for the rest of his life.This Iowa mother is now warning parents to be cautious as she says "it can be anybody, your best friend, your sister, your brother, or your mom,” she said.  “If you see a cold sore or anything on them just don't let them come by your baby."

According to WNEM, HSV is especially dangerous for babies under 6-months-old, because their immune systems are still developing.

The photos of the little boy are so hard to look at as he looks like he's miserable and in absolute pain. It's just heartbreaking but a good warning to parents.
