Cold vs rsv

Common Questions and Answers about Cold vs rsv


Avatar f tn Hi! We have a dog...a golden retriever/shepherd mix. We already have all hardwood floors and no curtains and I don't use any harsh cleaners...just mild soap and water to mop the floors, etc. Thank you for your response. How is your son now? We are not an allergic history of asthma and the only allergy is a wasp allergy that I developed a couple of years ago from multiple stings. This is why asthma makes no sense, although I suppose it could just happen. I am super concerned!
Avatar f tn Has your doctor tested for RSV? I believe it's a mucus test and it takes a couple days to get results. It doesn't hurt to get a second opinion.
Avatar f tn Well Evans RSV started out like a normal cold, so we didnt think anything of it. We were doing everything we could to try to get rid of it, but it got worse. One day he woke up and started wheezing. We took him to the hospital, and sure enough he had it. His turned into Bronchilitis then he had 3 ear infections from it. He was eating fine, and was happy so thats why we thought it was just a cold w/ a stuffy nose. If her condition worsens definately bring her in.
Avatar n tn they did several echos on him for the first few months of his life, i was told this is to monitor him I do want to make a suggestion and you really need to talk to your daughters cardiologist about this, there is an illness and I am not trying to scare you, but there is an illness out there called RSV, it is a cold in you and I and healthy children.
Avatar n tn My son is going to be 2 months old soon and a couple of days after he was born they told me he has RSV, i have been in and out of the hospital so many times and he dose not seem to be getting any better. I have read everybody stories and How they lost their loved ones and i am so scared that it might happen to my son. Please is there anything that i can do to prevent this from getting worse???
Avatar f tn my baby has RSV. I felt sick a little before we found out she had it and then a cople days later I got a cold do you think that could be it? and thank you.
Avatar f tn Nursing has been so difficult too. I had a cold about two weeks ago and so did his dad. What is an RSV ? I called his Dr. Today and they told me to keep using saline drops and and suctioning the mucus out and if it didn't get better with in 10 days to take him to the Er. I did order a "nose Frieda nasal aspirator" target has one so I'm still wating for that to arrive. Should I be super worried ?
973741 tn?1342342773 s kind of surprising that you fear death from RSV, usually considered to be a mild virus (often compared to a mild cold). Have you actually had RSV and had a bad time with it, or are you just frightened of it?
284738 tn?1283106819 he just got his 3rd and last synagis until rsv season starts back up again in october. the good news is, rsv season is almost over. unfortunately, our little ones got it at the very end. :( i know it's still out there even when it's not in season, but it's not as bad... hope your little one gets better soon!!
1346146 tn?1299360497 Well Lauren has rsv! My pedi also said adults can get it to!?!? Didn't know that. I guess that explains this cold type stuff I have. So she is on breathing treatments. We caught it early enough so hopefully it wont be so bad. Dh is also sick, my oldest son broke his foot last week at school and is in a nonwalking cast, and Lauren also bit my left breast last week while nursing and it's infected so im on antibiotics and she can't nurse from that side!
Avatar f tn RSV is a resportory disease that starts as a common cold and then starts to shot down the resportory system very scary. We finally found out what it was that my daughter had. She had strep in the stomach and intestines. Instead of the strep staying in her throat she swallowed it. She got worse that ever after I posted this, so I brought her to a different hospital and they figured it out. thanks for responding.
Avatar f tn for a runny nose/congestion and a cough. He told me she has a cold. The other day I suctioned out her nose with the bulb and there was blood in it along with yellow/green mucus. I told her Dr but he just said it sounds like a sinus infection but didn't offer any meds. Today I noticed she's breathing fast but I don't know if its just because she's congested?
1347128 tn?1333810296 her doctor said that the next cold she gets it would most likely turn into the RSV again. but they gave her benadril. her doctor told me to get a humidifier and put it in the same room as the baby and turn or you could also turn on the hot water and get it steamy in there while you have your baby in there and that could help also, i did both of those thing with her and it helped alot!!
Avatar n tn My 10 month old DD has it as well. Hers is brought on by a virus....just a cold that ends up in her chest causing the RAD. Others can be brought on by allergies. Do you know what triggered it for him? How did they treat it? Is he on meds now? My dd has been hospitalized twice for it - just a day in the hospital one time and the other was just a trip to the ER. Since uses the nebulizer quite frequently - just about any time she gets a cold now.
Avatar n tn you also might want to ask your cardiologist or primary doctor about if your little one should recieve the synagis vaccine. this is to help lesson the effects of RSV (this is a viral infection) most kids can fight it off, if they are healthy to begin with. i am not sure if your little one would qualify. I wouldn't see why not. this infection from what I was toldif it affects newborns who are premmeis have a heart condition, lung issues and a low immune system.
192918 tn?1199451179 My 9 mo old was in the hospital last night because she got a cold that moved into her chest. The congestion was making it hard for her to breathe. She was diagnosed with reactive airway disease (RAD), which I guess is similar to asthma, but since they can't test for asthma at this age they call it RAD. Anyway, this is the second time since September that she's been in the hospital for this. Poor kid can't get a common cold without having problems breathing...
Avatar m tn On page 188 similarlily in fig 4 the effect on the subgenomic replicon cells. RSV in micromols/Liter vs fold replication enhancement. Good work, we assume. Now there are a few papers that have actually measured, in a reliable well documented HPLC fashion, the achieved RSV concentration in the blood of human subjects after exposure to 250 and 500mg of 99% transResveratrol.
Avatar f tn My 11 week has rsv .. He was full term .. Has any other mother had this in a infant ..
Avatar f tn That depends in the severity of the RSV. Right now my daughter (she's 18 months) has a very mild version of RSV.
Avatar f tn Finally a few days ago i took him in again to the ER n they found out he has a virus newborns have been getting its Called Rsv n if they would have tested it before they would have found it i was So pissed!!! So now today we got out of the childerns hospital they sent him home with oxygen but to me he still seems bad but they that he was Fine!!
Avatar n tn I have an 11 month old with rsv today is heart rate is avg 176bpm and his resp rate is 50 plus. This has been ongoing, he is hospitalized and on ventilation treatments. He is listless and we are worried, how long can a babies breathing and heart rate work this hard before he goes into distress.
593530 tn?1263847957 I brought Brody to his pediatrician last week because he was very congested. After a nose swab was tested it was determined that he has RSV. Since it's a virus it can't be treated with antibiotics, so she instructed me to get a cool mist humidifier and keep his nasal pasages clear by using saline solution. The only symptom he's had is the congestion. There's no fever, coughing, mucous coming out, etc.
1368291 tn?1299629804 Saturday he was having lots of nasal congestion and coughing so I took him to the ER. He tested positive for RSV so the last few days have been scary. We are doing a cool mist humidifier with eucalyptus oil at night, albuterol breathing treatments and keeping his nose suctioned out. I hope he gets better soon but I did learn that apparently you cant trust family to let you know...
Avatar n tn My daughter is 3 months old and has caught a cold, she's already been to the doctor and we are doing all we can do but I can't help but wonder is it because I placed her crib by the window? Its hot during the day, cool at night, and then a tad cold in the morning. Do you think all these rapid weather changes affected her?
537497 tn?1292553056 Two of my daughters have this after having RSV when they were babies. One of my daughters was hospitalized. Both now have asthma, which is basically what reactive airway disease is. It is usually triggered by a virus, cold weather or exercise. To my knowledge it is not serious. I hope your little man gets better soon. Have you googled Reactive Airway Disease to get more info?
655124 tn?1224364959 my baby is 7 month and she has a cold i would like to know what can i do for her
2189208 tn?1339572701 Rsv is a really bad cold it does nothing,to adults but is in,some cases fatal to infants!
