372328 tn?1214776427 And it doesnt seem to be letting up at all. How long should you wait before going to the doctors? We have been giving her tylenol cold and just started giving her triaminic cold the other day. She has the cough but its the non-stop runny nose thats driving us crazy. Not even after 1 min of wiping it its back again. And then she rubs her face and gets it all over her hands. WHat should i do?
Avatar f tn My questions are, how could they NOT be able to give me a more accurate time of death, and can you find RSV on the brain (nowhere else), and every other part of the body checks out fine, and that be enough to say that's what it was? Honestly, I don't know if anyone that even answers these questions could make me feel better because it was a very long time ago and I don't feel like anybody took us seriously then, or would take us seriously now.
Avatar n tn Does anyone know of long term consequences to RSV? I have read that he may be at an increased risk for asthma which really worrries me. Please pray that he gets better soon and stays well!
593530 tn?1263847957 How long it took to get rid of virus? my daugter is 4 weeks old and she got RSV. She was hospitalized for 3 days and was being monitored for her oxygen levels. She is still coughing a lot and its hard to watch her. Doc said it can take upto a month or 2 to fully recover.
Avatar f tn A teacher that I work with has a baby in the hospital with RSV. 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.
Avatar n tn I am a 25 yr old female who has had Genital Herpes for 3 years, I often get recurrences where I suffer from blisters and I would like to know how long I am contagious for during these recurrences
Avatar n tn s immune system usually beats the virus and you are no longer contagious. How long can I really expect to be contagious to others? Thank you very much for your help.
Avatar n tn A week, months or how long? Could it have developed and worsened over the 3 months that she had a cough? Please help me out with these questions or any information that you can give. I appreciate all your help.

490418 tn?1209523379 My 6yr old son died due to complication from RSV in Feb. 2008. He did get Synagis until his third winter. He was in the hospital for most of RSV season his first two years and did not get RSV. The next year we were denied Synagis due to the cost. He ended up on a vent in the PICU for a week. The following winter he spent 10 days in the hospital with RSV. This year he spent the first week in PICU and the next two week on Eccmo. He died on his 6th birthday. We never even heard of RSV IG.
Avatar f tn RSV is one thing that I am really worried about. That is why I have taken Anna to the doctor 3 different times for the same cough. They always say her lungs are clear and have never even mentioned RSV to me. She feels fine during the day and is eating well. She has no fever and isn't seeming to have trouble breathing. Do you think she could still have RSV? My reason for not going back to the doctor is that where I live, flu and a serious stomach virus are really bad.
Avatar n tn How can I tell if my daughter is over rsv she was getting better now is sleeping all the time and is having issuing breathing
Avatar f tn I have snot heard of RSV, could you explain what it is and how it should be treated.
220217 tn?1209679677 Just wanted to give everybody an update on us. Both boys are home now after Brodie's little stint back to the PICU and both are doing great. We have had a rough week with gas, no sleep and screaming at the top of their lungs. However, we started giving them Mylicon last night and they are back to sleeping like angels. Knock on wood it stays like this. They will be 6 weeks on Thursday. Boy how time flies.
Avatar n tn How long is Chlamydia contagious for after being treated? I finished the 7 day Doxycycline treatment and had sex on day 8 (from start). I would have liked to wait more than the recommended 7 days of abstinence but my gf from out of state was in town and we had sex. Is it possible that I was still contagious at this point? I read somewhere that bacterial infections are not contagious at about 48 hours after treatment is started. Is this accurate?
