Common Questions and Answers about Rsv symptoms fever

rsv

My last child is 3 yo so I think he's still within the age range of being at risk for getting RSV. Since his older brother had it when he was 9 months old it was so scary I dislike the winters because I fear every cold/cough they get. Has the RSV season begun already? My kids just started getting this cough, all of them have been just fine even my 3 yo until an hour ago...7pm. He has been breathing rapidly (53) since then but he doesn't have a fever or crying.
There maybe a small increase in recurrent wheezing episodes in about 40% of children with previous RSV infections only if there was a strong family history of allergies and asthma. RSV may recur again but symptoms tend to be milder with subsequent re-infections This information is strictly for academic purposes and the patient's physician is ultimately responsible for the care and management .
She emailed that if you baby has a cough with no fever, please take them to get checked for RSV. My DD is 6 months old and has had a chronic cough for a long time. It seems to get better and then starts all over again. I have taken to the doctor for it three times, the last time a week ago today. Everytime they check her really good and say it is just drainage from a cold. She has not had any fever and feels good. Last night her cough seemed a little worse, but she still feels great.
During the course of this viral infection, a child can develop a secondary bacterial infection. The symptoms of this infection can be more severe in nature than the RSV and lead to higher temperature and greater difficulty. This can happen quite quickly. The source of this infection could be from the ears or sinuses or directly into the lungs. I hope this helps answer some of your questions.
My 6 1/2 year old son has been dealing w/recurring fever, every 4 weeks, since Dec. '07. Don't you just love the pediatricians that tell you "oh, your son just gets sick more than others...it's just a virus." Yeah right. So we switched practices, got blood work done, and we're working with a great pediatric rheumatologist.
I brought him in on Friday morning to be checked out and it turns out he caught a virus called Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), which is basically an infection of the lungs. Even writing this I break in tears to see my little one suffer so much. It's more like a common cold in adults but for kids his age is more like Bronchiolitis. I had to take him to the ER because of the fever and congestion.
Then as suddenly as they started they stopped, until now. He had RSV mid February and ran a fever as high as 104, then 3 weeks later had a fever w/high White Blood Cell Count, then this weekend we had the scarriest episode ever. On Wednesday he was perfectly normal, then late Wednesday night he woke up with a fever of 102. I opted to watch him and see what happened on Thursday and if was getting worse the Doctor said bring him in.
my 3 year old has been running a low grade fever (99.8 to 101.8) for over 10 days. We took her to the Drs 4 days ago and was tested for flu, strep, and rsv which all came back negative. Yesterday she started saying her "brain" hurt. she has a runny nose, crusty/buggery eyes and cough along with the fever.
My son is 3.5 yo and he has been getting fever on and off for about 5 months. The fever goes up to 103 Degrees. But, the strange thing is when he gets the fever it may come and go throughout the day. Did you get answers?
My son just turned 19, has an extensive med hx due to prematurity so ill health is not a new experience for him...hx of BPD, RSV, repeated pneumonias, severe asthma, surgeries, GERDS, tx for ulcers x 3, bowel polyps, meningitis, mononucleosis and last year an unexplained illness w/5 day hospital admission. He had high temps, enlarged spleen, liver, pancreas and a platelet count of 30,000. never a definitive dx. Ironically that was his 4th episode of ITP, last one being at age 18.
My son was 6 at the time of this surgery. Some of his symptoms such as a continual low grade fever, etc were investigated during hospitalizations and nothing significant was ever discovered. He also had stomach issues and hip pain. This was treated but all blood work involving these things never pointed to any specific diagnosis. Since I used to work as a nurse, I finally took things into my own hands last year and made an appointment for my child at Chicago Shriners Hospital.
) with a fever of 105 degrees and no other symptoms. And they sent us home with antibiotics EVERY time. We would then follow up with the doctor ASAP. Very rarely was she still feverish, so the doctor ASSUMED that it was an infection and that the antibiotics. To make a long story short: we did EVERY test out there and dutifully went to the ER and the doctor EVERY time it happened. We piggybacked the ibuprofen and tylenol but often still couldn't keep her fever lower than 104...
She is eating better, almost normal amounts (I subtracted two meals that she vomited). I took her back to the dr today her fever was 101 but just before bed I took it again and it's 99.1 THANK GOD! They gave me oral steroids (for lung inflammation) - she vomited them. She vomits anything I put in her mouth that isn't her sippy cup with goat's milk. He said she's moderately dehydrated but not bad enough to hospitalize. I have to give her four medications but none I can get down...
Since last June he has ran a temp at least once a month(usually more). He was treated for RSV about 2 weeks ago and is also being treated for asthma symptoms. He finished a round of antibotics about a week ago and as of last Friday has started running fever again. It generally runns between 99-101 but has recently started rising to 103-104.5(it was 104.5 when I took him to the hosp and he tested positive for RSV).
) My 7 month old baby has been getting a lowgrade fever every couple weeks that lasts usually not more than a day and a half. She hasn't diplayed any other symptoms until about a month ago. She's had a runny nose and slight cough. Docs all say its not RSV or any other thing... Why is this happening? Is it really just the germs she is being exposed to at the day care daily? How long will her fevers last? Is being at the day care good for her immune system, building it up...
It started with a flu (headache,fatigue,head in a fog,fever but no nasal congestion). The symptoms persisted longer than usual. After 2 weeks I saw a microbiologist who gave me Biaxin XL for 7 days which dropped the fever (38.2) and dimished my symptoms, but I was still unwell. I have remained unwell since and my symptoms persist...
a common cold, mild headache, cough, fever, and a general feeling of being ill. I should mention that respiratory symptoms are present too. An adult can fight this virus without meds. Still, I haven't really heard of nausea along with a common cold but I'd ask for a sample to see if it is bacterial or viral, and if bacterial - what kind of bacteria it is, even if RSV is viral.
My child was born 7 weeks early. It sounds like your shild did not get his/her RSV shots. Here are the symptoms. Please get him/her tested ASAP it could be life threatening : Again, the symptoms of RSV infections can range from having a simple clear runny nose and occasional cough that can be treated at home, to severe difficulty breathing that may require hospitalization. Other symptoms might include a low-grade fever, sore throat, headache, and irritability.
and Feb. Then, on Sat. Sept. 8th he developed a fever with no other symptoms. The fever lasted until Sun. evening. I started giving him albuteral and took him to the doctors on Mon.The doc said his lungs were clear and the fever gone but had ulcers in his mouth. She thought he had hand, foot and mouth. Later that day he woke up from a nap I noticed that he seemed to be grunting when he was breathing. I gave him 2 puffs of albuteral.
I'm so tired and frustrated!!! DD gets sick every 4-5 weeks!! She is running a fever again, has a wet cough and a runny nose. She was just sick in the beginning of December and in the end of October bofore that. I'm beginning to wonder if I'm doing something wrong. She is not in daycare so she cannot be getting it from the other kids. She rarely comes in contact with other kids (other than her brother who also stays home full time). What the heck is going on???
Maybe go for a second opinion. I would.. It very well could be RSV. My daughter has alot of the same symptoms and they are tryign to figure out what it is.. does he seem to be in distress when his lips turn blue... or does anything about him change when he has a fever... or coughing??? If your doctor isnt giving you proper advice. Go get a second opinion.
having a simple clear runny nose and occasional cough that can be treated at home, to severe difficulty breathing that may require hospitalization. Other symptoms might include a low-grade fever, sore throat, headache, and irritability. Younger children, especially those under 2 or 3 years old, are most at risk for more severe symptoms, such as high fever, wheezing, difficulty breathing, a persistent cough, or apnea. I hope this helps.
old has asthma and allergies.....had a flu shot on the 11th.......on the 17th he started wheezing, breathing rapidly, running a fever of 102.6...18th ne started getting diarrhea, nasal congestion along with the other symptoms, last night he began vomiting and his cough sounds croupy....could this be from the flu shot or could it be pneumonia...any advice!!!!???????????
if not then it might just be cold drs will worry if the baby develops a fever or bad cough.
Hay fever and allergic rhinitis should be ruled out. Persistence of RSV should also be looked into. Normally the food allergens cause only gastric symptoms. However if the allergen is absorbed and reaches the airways it can cause hay fever and asthma like symptoms. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
I totally believe that. Guess he didn't and still didn't think that she had the symptoms of a child with RSV. That is what he said anyway. Well anyway. Thanks for your comments and I'm sorry this post was so long.
edward has had a cough the last couple of days. he has no fever and no other symptoms but it is not like a dry cough, it sounds like there's some mucus there and everytime he does cough, it seems like it bothers him. like maybe his throat is hurting or scrtachy? i am taking him to the dr. tomorrow anyway for his 10 month checkup but i just wanted to know if theres anything i should/could be doing in the meantime.
Or if he is having hives, rash, fever etc symptoms your child may be infected by virus. The most common viruses in children are the influenza virus, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), rhinovirus and adenovirus, hepatitis viruses, cytomegalovirus etc You need to maintain proper hygiene of him/her. Also you can give him healthy food like milk, fruits, vegetables, regular exercise to increase immunity. Allergy problems are less seen in children’s who are breast fed.
DD has her first ear infection, actually both ears are infected so what do I do? She has had NO symptoms of any kind, no fever, no tugging at her ears, and she has been sleeping fine at night. I brought her in today for her 18 month check only to find out that both ears are infected. Her ped. prescribed Omnicef for it. My question is Does she really need the antibiotic? Because I read that 80% of ear infections clear up on their own. Or do I give it to her anyway?
Usually the first symptoms are swollen nodes and then later as disease progresses, B symptoms like the ones I mentioned before appear. With the family history of autoimmune diseases, this may be a possibility. Hopefully the blood tests will help reveal what is really going on.
