Avatar f tn can adults get RSV and how old are u when u stop being able to get it
Avatar f tn Did they test her for RSV? It is uncommon in adults for the most part and they don't do much about it other than wait it out and treat the symptoms, such as benadryl, etc... It could also be severe allergies to the change in weather. Does she respond at all to medicines such as Claritin? Hope they are feeling better soon.
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.
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 a common cold, mild headache, cough, fever, and a general feeling of being ill. I should mention that respiratory symptoms are present too. An adult can fight this virus without meds. Still, I haven't really heard of nausea along with a common cold but I'd ask for a sample to see if it is bacterial or viral, and if bacterial - what kind of bacteria it is, even if RSV is viral.
Avatar f tn He has pneumonia every other month (since birth), he has also had bronchiolitis (without RSV), bronchitis, H1N1, and most currently RSV. When he was two we removed his tonsil and adenoids in hopes to help his asthma symptoms. While it did decrease the amount of sinus infections he had, it did nothing to help any other area. He is on Advair, 115/21 two puffs twice daily, and Allegra (for unknown allergies).

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. Luly, Ph.D.
Avatar m tn Yes the studies that amblyopia from birth or child hood has traditionally responded poorly to treatment in adults. Treatment much much more successful if started before age 7 The new studies were done on removing congenital cataracts not due to striabismus or aneisometrophia. The new research does not suggest that treatment is highly successful just some better.
Avatar f tn I read the paper ad it told me that in mild disease that no specific treatment is necessary. So I guess he is only a mild case, but I don't know how to tell if he is getting worse. I read on another site that family history of asthma puts him at a higher risk for becoming a severe case. I am know wen he is getting worse?
Avatar f tn I just had my beautiful son on Nov 30 th! And already he is sick! My baby was taking to hospital 3days ago. And I found out he had RSV it's a viral affection u get from being around someone sick. My daughter had a bad cold and I assuming he got it from his big sissy which is only 1 by the way but it's sad because how do u tell ur 1 old to stay away from there baby brother.
Avatar f tn they start out with congestion and then a cough which has lead to bronchitis,pneumonia,and rsv?which out of those 6 months each one has had pneumonia,with rsv together and by itself?and my 2yearold has had bronchitis more? I keep taking em to their pediatrician and our hospitals ER and they just continue antibiotics with breathing treatments and steriods?what should i do?
Avatar f tn They said she had RSV, they could either suck some snot out and test it and tell me she has RSV, or just tell me she has it and the treatment will be the same - her cough was also barky (croup like) at night, so she told me to wrap her up and sit outside and let her breathe in the cold air. I hope its not RSV, but if it is a mild case and isnt in her lungs and she is eating and drinking ok, they probably wont do anything anyway.
Avatar f tn Our doctor said antibiotics will not do anything for RSV. The also gave him nebuliser treatment to help with chest congestion. Make sure to keep up with fluids.
Avatar n tn She has seen couple Dermatologists in LA arebut no one has yet suggested any treatment that relly works. We have a wedding coming up in Fall but so far she has no hope for improvements. I am worried if she would improve and recover fully? Are there any new treatments - western medicine, easter medicine, natural cures anything that has worked? -AP This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/239921'>PLEVA in children</a>.
Avatar n tn From what I understand, RSV is a viral infection that is usually present in hospitals. My son has had it while in the hospital for an extended period. As with any just about every virus, RSV is infectius. RSV is not a life time infection or causes any lasting effect, as far as I know. Your grandson probubly had a feveral seizure. As a parent, I don't know for sure, but this is what I have thought RSV is.
Avatar f tn If a person does not have RSV can they cause an infant to get RSV just by having a common cold
2189208 tn?1339572701 Rsv is a really bad cold it does nothing,to adults but is in,some cases fatal to infants!
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 Hi there, Did your pediatrician ever check your baby for RSV? Its a nasty virus that can lead to all of the symptoms you have described. My baby had this at 3 months. It started out like a small cough, runny nose and I could just tell she didnt feel good. They listened to her lungs and heard some fluid in there. They did a swab test in her nostril and it came up positive for RSV. RSV can lead to asthma in children, if it's not treated.
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.
