Rsv disease symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Rsv disease symptoms


Avatar m tn So, for children with RSV disease, no specific treatment is necessary other than the treatment of symptoms. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
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 this a true diagnoses or is she covering her tracks for treatment?
Avatar n tn 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 .
537497 tn?1292556656 my youngest son is in the hospital right now with reactive airway disease.. I am freaking out, does anyone know anything about this??? Please lots of prayers for my little guy.. Thanks guys, you are the best...
Avatar n tn I just took my 3 month old to the doctor and was told he has Reactive Airway Disease. This is my first child and I have never heard of this before. I understand it is something like asthma. Anyone who knows about this please let me know what I have to look forward to...if this type of thing continues or if there is something I can do to help cure it or at least relieve him of some of the symptoms. Still no clue what caused it. But wondering what all it entails. Thank you!!
Avatar n tn Some w/ ear inf., others with RSV, and some with bronchiolitis. My son has not been that sick. He has had two bouts of bronchiolitis (9mths apart)and a sinus infection, all in one year. He has had congestion that he can't get rid of and a cough ( not nearly as bad as others I have read). Although sometimes his cough makes him vomit. I guess my question is this.....Could he have been misdiagnosed? Or are there less severe symptoms that go along with RAD? Please help!
Avatar n tn My eleven year old daughter has experienced odd symptoms from about four weeks of age. It seems as though she gets everything that comes along. We are frustrated to say the least. The list seems long: -Elevated biliruben for 5 weeks at birth -RSV and double pneumonia at 6wks -ongoing colds and pneumonias (no less than annual) and strep rashes -RSV at age 2 again requiring hospitalization -Age 2-4 spontaneous vomitting on about a 30 day cycle.
Avatar n tn 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...
Avatar f tn I went to my 18 wk sonogram yesterdayand told doc my 14 month old has rsv. A respitory virus and that now i have cold like symptoms and a rash on my face. She said i coukd have parvo and they drew blood to find out for sure but i don't have results yet. She says my baby can become anemic and can need a blood transfusion while in the womb. I am so terrified.
Avatar n tn His x-ray showed reactive airway disease but they were/are uncertain if it was due to RSV. Since then he has had a cold pretty much one after the other (I have two other children) since then. The albuterol treatments did not do much when he had the RSV..the wheezing continued and my ped. said if it was asthma the neb. treatment would have worked to cease the wheezing. Even during his colds he has a lot of clear phlegm, sometimes coughing will bring up the phelgm if he vomits and if I do a neb.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn In reading what the symptoms of RAD actuall are, I am concerned that my son has been incorrectly diagnosed. He does not have wheezing or difficulty breathing. He does however have severe congestion that doesn't help his breathing. The allergist we took him to stated that his adenoids were enlarged and she had us take an x-ray. We haven't received the results yet, but I guess I need to ask if it is possible to have RAD without those other symptoms??? Please help! Thank you!
306245 tn?1244388567 here is a quick history of what he has had done and what is going on.. he was born with a large VSD at 5 weeks was on a vent. for 11 days with the RSV (the extubated on day 9, but had to re intubate. at just over 2 months he went into heart failure. 3 just over 3 months had his heartsugery, not onlly did he have a Large VSD he had a small ASD, and a PDA which were taken caer of. he developed MRSA after the surgery.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn Roseola countless ear infections strep throat tonsilitis double pneumonia adnovirus RSV eyes constantly runny and puffy hand/mouth.foot disease chronic coughing chronic fevers rapid breathing (when she runs fevers) Is it possible for a baby to be this sick all of the time without there being an underlying issue? My porr sister is beside herself because the pediatrician just keeps saying it is a virus, but we honestly feel otherwise.
Avatar f tn has there been any improvement since June?
Avatar n tn I don't know where you are from or what diseases are there, and I don't know the symptoms of Lyme Disease or Rocky Mtn. tick fever, but I would certainly mention that your son got sick right after going to camp in the woods. Maybe someone on this forum that knows about these diseases and their symptoms can give you more detail, but I certainly think it's a factor in your sons illness. Good luck.
Avatar n tn The only management is supportive. I've heard that a humidifier in the childs room can be helpful. The symptoms should start to subside shortly after the first few days. If you suspect that your child cannot breathe, notice the lips turning bluish or the child becomes extremely lethargic and weak you should of course take him to the emergency room.
Avatar n tn The most common of these is respiratory syncytial virus (RVS), which is responsible for about 100,000 hospitalizations of children under age four each year. Two subtypes of RSV have been identified, one of which causes most of the severe bronchiolitis infections. In addition, bronchiolitis can be caused by influenza, parainfluenza, and adenoviruses, all of which are common from fall through spring.
Avatar n tn If the pressure is high and the defect is smaller, she will likely not require surgery. However, if the pressure is low and she is having symptoms of getting out of breath or becoming sweaty with feeds, she will need some medications to help with these symptoms and may be more likely to require surgical closure of her defect.
Avatar n tn 6 week old-admitted to hospital with croup......10 week old - admitted to hospital with RSV.....1 year old - admitted to hospital with RSV......1 year old - admitted to hospital with bronchitis.....2 year old - admitted to hospital with pneumonia.....2 year old - admitted to hospital for colapsed lung......2 year old - admitted to hospital with pneumonia. Every time he was admitted his chest was retracting and he had a virus with a lot of mucus.
Avatar f tn It started with constant ear infections and RSV infection as infant. He has had bronchial-pneumonia and pneumonia, and gets continuous colds and bronchitis, and is sick much more often than is well. The pediatrician thought he might have underlying allergies and/or asthma and prescribed zyrtec and singulair. He does require albuterol during episodes of illness to treat wheezing.
Avatar m tn Hi, How is your daughter? I'm sorry to hear what she has to go through at such a young age. If there is no family history of asthma, but you share almost the same respiratory symptoms, this can be the focus of further evaluation. Were there imaging studies such as CT scan done? What was the result of the endoscopy? Can you think of possible triggers that both of you may have been exposed to such as your house or environmental issues? Try to hang on, answers may not be clear right now.
Avatar f tn While being there caught rsv and since her immune system is already in overload rsv became the croup. She went into respiratory arrest,bp & o2 dropped. Scariest nights of my life. For now we have to keep her isolated until they know why her immune system is compromised.
Avatar n tn 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.
1259420 tn?1269621342 No fever any of the days after admittance. I also have a 3 year old and a 2 year old who have been battling RSV and bronchitis ever since the 3 year old started nursery school in Sept. My baby seems like a little petri dish for the other two. he has had RSV once and 3 colds and had to use a nebulizer with xoponex once for the RSV in December. Never any ear infections or other to report to date. March 10th he developed a 104.4 fever.
Avatar n tn My son is almost 7 months old. About 5 weeks ago he had come down with RSV. Although he had a mild case, the doctor had informed me of petichae and told me to keep an eye out. Shortly after I noticed a petchia on his leg. Doctor had looked and said one is normal time to time. For about 4 weeks after (RSV lingers) I noticed he started to get more. They were very small, light brown in color, and randomly placed on his legs, but wouldn't blanch with pressure.
Avatar n tn RSV also causes repeated infections throughout life, usually associated with moderate-to-severe cold-like symptoms; however, severe lower respiratory tract disease may occur at any age, especially among the elderly or among those with compromised cardiac, pulmonary, or immune systems.
Avatar n tn My Son is 3 1/2 and has similar symptoms. With have tried everything and he's still coughing, even as I write. I have found no allergy or asthma meds have helped. We had him tested for allergy and he doesn't appear to have any, yet them have him on allergy meds. I'm assuming this is because they don't know what else to do. They say he will grow out of it, but I'm not willing to wait it out. Please let me know if you find anything and I will do the same. This is the info I found........
Avatar f tn ) He was born full term and very healthy,he is gaining weight and growing just fine. His first problem was when he was about 3 months old when his symptoms were a runny nose, chest congestion,low grade fever,my sister took him to the pediatrician and he prescribed Amoxicillin he took it for 10 days never did get better. Then he was at daycare had a coughing fit and stopped breathing for maybe 2 or 3 seconds. Was taken to the E.R. Done chest x-ray came back fine, oxygen level was normal.
