593530 tn?1263847957 Thanks for the advice ladies. I have been elevating his head pretty much since birth just because I thought it'd be more comfortable for him. And he pees ALL THE TIME! LOL! How does so much fluid come out of something so small!? He seems to be in a much better mood, but he's still pretty congested. Hopefully it'll pass soon.
377012 tn?1283965435 Well, for the 2nd time this year dylan has been diagnosed with RSV......i have no idea how he is getting it since none of the other kids around have it....not unless they are carrying the germ home from school....this drives me crazy! he already as really bad indoor/outdoor allergies and asthma...so what next!!!!
Avatar f tn I drank some caffeine. Did not help. It does not bother me while sleeping. I attributed the headache first to the virus. And then to perhaps a side effect of the Decadron. But it has been a week now and I am thinking if it were from either virus or side effect, it should be gone by now. Any thoughts?
Avatar f tn Dif your son cough last long after the virus
Avatar f tn 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. I am just a paranoid parent and freaked out when I got that email. I don't want to go back to the doctor for nothing.
Avatar n tn t treated at all, it developed slowly into her chest and then still the 2nd visit nothing was giving to her(I mean NO X-Ray, nothing) and then I feel the RSV developed from all the other stuff. He agreed that it probably developed in that way. WHAT DO YOU THINK???? I guess I just needing some closure to try to understand why something besides an ear infection wasn't found. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Avatar n tn I feel for you. We were in the hospital twice with RSV last winter with our little guy. He has NO effects and the doctors have said nothing about long term effects. It's scary seeing them on oxygen and it's true, it just has to run it's course. They will probably keep you a few days after he IS well to monitor him. They did with our little guy anyway. Our little guy does have asthma but it's a mild case and I have never been told it was related to RSV.
Avatar n tn RSV is a respiratory virus , infecting the linings of the airways starting from the nose down to the lungs , making them inflamed and congested over a limited period of time after which the natural immunity of the body kicks in and helps the airways shed off the sick lining that was infected , replacing it with new healthy tissue that is able to defend itself against any additional virus load . This may take up to 2 weeks but most symptoms disappear in 5-7 days .
Avatar m tn In the late 1960s, children in Washington, DC received an RSV vaccine in which the virus was inactivated with formalin. Eighty percent of the children given the shot were hospitalized with severe respiratory disease, and two died. Many scientists had thought the formalin was responsible for the vaccine's problems, but the chemical has been used safely in other vaccines.
Avatar n tn Does he have RSV.. That sounds like what my daughter had when she was 1..

Avatar n tn throat doc) wrote medical journal articles about how a cold (or other virus infections) can have the virus spread to the vagus nerve (or branches of the vagus nerve), and this can cause a person to first get GERD (Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease). Coughing can be caused by many, many things. One major cause of coughing is GERD. Spicy food, milk, and soy milk can also aggravate GERD, leading to more coughing.
Avatar n tn This may be residual airway reactivity from the Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), which is also aggravated by the girls having had Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD). This is not uncommon. It is also not uncommon for this to last a while and be associated with wheezing. I think the approach your family physician has tried is a good one. If this fails, you may consider seeing a specialist.
172411 tn?1287086265 RSV is a virus that is quite common at this time of the year - do whatever the doctor tells you and your little one will be good - untreated and uncared for, RSV can go into pneumonia, etc - its a lot of respiratory symptoms, similar to a cold or flu and seems to effect infants most commonly - probably because they are so small and immune systems are weak - do what the doctor says - and your little guy will be ok

Avatar m tn If a person has sex with a HIV+ person how long would it take before the other person can pass the virus over to a thrid person. Example if a man had sex with a women tonight who is HIV+. If that same man has sex with his wife the next day is it to early for him to pass the virus over to his wife, being that himself only been exspoused to the virus only one day.

Avatar n tn He has all of the symptoms of RSV...they did the mucous test and said he has moderate case and that the ventolin and cortisone inhaler will help make him comfortable, although I am losing faith in his Dr. since I was the one that was showing the most concern for an answer. We have been in to see her once a week for 12 weeks...he has ran 2 very high fevers that lasted days each one, along with crying when coughing...is this a true diagnoses or is she covering her tracks for treatment?
