When to go to the hospital
Signs and symptoms of dehydration usually warrant going to a hospital's emergency department. Infants, especially under 6 weeks of age, should see their pediatrician or an emergency center if oral sores appear, or if the infant appears to slow urine output or decrease fluid intake. Individuals with immune suppression (for example, patients undergoing chemotherapy, HIV patients, or cancer patients) should contact their doctors if they suspect a HSV-1 infection.
