Polack, the lead researcher on the study, told Reuters Health.

192918 tn?1199451179 My oldest had RSV when she was young too...and therefore similar breathing problems. She too has outgrown it and she's 3 now. My 9 month old's name is Camryn too (but she's a girl) :) They tested her for RSV last night but it was negative. She also had the stomach bug last week and now this. So they are very similar. Her doctor put her on oral steroids for 5 days. Once that is finished, then she'll be on pulmicort every night and Singulair once a day until April.
Avatar n tn I am very sorry your baby nephew is having these problems at such a young age. I don't really understand about being a 'blue baby' although my half sister was one. From what i have learned thru the years, it happens because of the mother and father's blood not being able to mix very well which produces a 'blue baby'. Click on the link below. It will give you helpful information to better understand the pulmonary problems. (Pulmonary is a major artery in the heart).
Avatar n tn indeed, the same microbial exposures, which are suspected to be protective at a critical point in immune system development, can aggravate allergic inflammation and worsen ongoing atopic disease. Often children who have had respiratory syntactical virus (RSV) go on to develop asthma.

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 .
Avatar n tn * most often affects infants and young children because their small airways can become blocked more easily than those of older kids or adults * typically occurs during the first 2 years of life, with peak occurrence at about 3 to 6 months of age * is more common in males, children who have not been breastfed, and those who live in crowded conditions Day-care attendance and exposure to cigarette smoke also can increase the likelihood that an infant will develop bronchiolitis.
Avatar n tn a cold will, and if you are implying your baby is premature then you need to call his or her pediatrician as premature babies are eprone to RSV which is a very dangerous respertory illness in children yet alone a premature infant.
Avatar f tn My 4 year old son coughs constantly at night. It's a dry, hacking cough which does not bring up any phlegm. It doesn't sound "sick" at all--it's the type of cough I wouldn't even notice except that he does it so frequently. During the day, often when he laughs or cries, it turns into the same dry, hacking cough. Otherwise, I haven't noticed that he does much coughing during the day. Does this sound like asthma? He has never wheezed or had difficulty breathing.
Avatar m tn Can Rsv cause cardiac arrest in a child who has past myocarditis? My son had viral myocarditis at 7 months and got rsv at 2 two weeks later passed away. And with his passed medical history should they have done something different like check his heart?
Avatar n tn I copied this form a web site Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a common viral disease of the lungs. It usually manifest itself as a cold in adults and older children, but can cause serious problems in infants. RSV can cause lower respitory infections, breathing problems, pneumonia or even death. According to statistics, over 125,000 infants are hospitalized annually with Respiratory Syncytial Virus, resulting in more than 500 deaths.
Avatar f tn 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. He's sitting down now watching a video now.

Avatar n tn The most common cause of bronchiolitis is a virus called respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), most commonly occurring in epidemics in late fall and winter each year. RSV affects almost all infants. Bronchiolitis can be a severe disease, but only about 1% of affected children require hospitalization. Premature infants and infants with underlying heart and lung disease are most at risk for severe, even life-threatening infections.
Avatar f tn Ok I have 4 children 13 male 11 female 3 female and 2 female, all but the 2 year old have severe medical problems. they all kinda start the same first came the eczema then breathing problems then severe infections. my 2 oldest children have had chicken pox more then a handful of times, each child has had pnuemonia at least 10 time most of the time being hospitalized, their ige levels are all above 70000, my sons list of medical problems are he was born with ...
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 n tn 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 m tn HCV, HBV, RSV, and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Updates on all four wholly-owned programs will be presented on Wednesday, January 13 at 11:00 a.m. PT at the 34th Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco. “Our successful HCV collaboration, our drug discovery expertise and our experience in virology resulted in our first marketed product with AbbVie, paritaprevir, which is part of the VIEKIRA PAK® combination HCV therapy,” commented Jay R.

Avatar f tn She was my first born baby, she weighed 9lbs 6 1/2oz, and although I had to have a C-section due to my genetic bone disease, she was delivered only 4 days before my due date, on March 19, 1999, so she was full term. To make this long story as short as I can, we hired a state certified babysitter to watch her during the day while we worked. On April 4th of 2000 we went to pick her up and the babysitter left the room to go get her from a back bedroom.
1743681 tn?1311222985 Greetings. I was wondering how common hyperthyroidism is in young children. My oldest daughter who just turned 4 was born a normal weight (7lbs13oz). At 5 months old, she was diagnosed with RSV and for some reason, decided to quit growing. She dropped from the 50th percentile to < the 3rd in 1 month. She weighed approximately 16 pounds at 1 year of age. At 4 years old, she now weighs 31 pounds. This child has the metabolism of a hummingbird. She is ALWAYS hungry.
765043 tn?1234583003 My son is 2 months. He has RSV. On top of that hehas pnemonia and Broncialitis. I am concerned. He has been on life support for a week exactly today. They have him on antibiotics for infection for phnemonia. ANd they say the rsv has to run it's course. But of course he is getting treatments. Such as pounding, suctionning after his IPV treatments. He had already been in the NICU after giving birth to him for 3 1/2 weeks. He had premaure lungs. 35 weeks old at birth. Jaundice. 1 apnea spell.
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 It would not be possible to make a comment without having a look at lesions and also medications in young children should be taken under a certified doctor's supervision. You should review with the pediatrician and also rule out allergic reactions. Let us know what his doctor advises and how she is doing. Hope this helps. Regards.
Avatar f tn Hi, I've been reading your post and researching a bit to see if I can be of help, as your child sounds quite ill in his lower respiratory tract. The RSV can be a serious virus in young children. Were you told much about it? Did the pulmonologist (hopefully you're seeing a specialist!) explain why he/she thinks your son was having these difficulties? Usually a full term baby - even one with asthma doesn't have so many other respiratory disorders.
