Avatar n tn This virus is so common that it probably visits us once or twice or even more ( depending on how many people actually live at home ) . It shows up as ( the common cold) in older children and adults and can present with sneezing , coughing , sore throat and lots of nasal discharge . This virus is not unique in producing these symptoms , there are many other viruses that can do the same .
Avatar n tn My daughter gets needles to prevent RSV because she was born preemie. RSV, doesnt harm adults or older children and most of the time people dont know they have it. It has alot of cold symptoms. Respiratory Synical Virus... (i think that is what it stands for.. ) IT is basically a bad cold. Though very contagious and harmful to pregnant people and little children and babies. (mainly under the age of 2) Most people can fight it off like a cold.
Avatar f tn can adults get RSV and how old are u when u stop being able to get it
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 n tn s sick. Xopenex is used to treat and PREVENT bronchospasm in children and adults. Pulmicort is used to prevent and reduce symptoms (wheezing and shortness of breath) caused by asthma. This medication belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. It works directly in the lungs to make breathing easier by reducing the irritation and swelling of the airways. Amoxicillin is a antibiotic which a lot of times is used to treat bronchitis along with many other things.
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 f tn It is not considered to be an STD as it can be cultured in normal asexual adults. It`s role is still uncertain. I am not sure why your GYN tested for it, but since you tested positive you and your partner may consider therapy. This is confusing I know. We don`t test or treat for it in our clinic.
Avatar n tn My older son got it as well from daycare, but he was around 4 months old at the time. RSV can look like a cold in older kids, or you may not notice it at all. Please be careful. I would pay it in a heartbeat. We have had so many x-rays, blood tests, visits...it's been really expensive and the meds he's on are crazy. He's on steroids again, plus the highest dose you can get on an inhaler, plus nebs, antibiotics, acid reflux meds...you don't want to be here.
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.

These replace the previous 2003 guidelines but apart from recommending an increased consumption of low fat dairy products there are few changes.

10947 tn?1281404252 Based on the results of this study, health experts recommend routine HPV vaccination for boys and girls ages 11 to 12. Older teenagers and young adults are also encouraged to get the HPV vaccine. While HPV doesn’t always lead to health problems, it’s important that women get regular screening tests to detect any early signs of cervical cancer.
Avatar f tn My Nephew (4 wks old) is currently in the hospital (going on 2 weeks) in PICU. He was taken to the ER for difficulty breathing (chest caving in) and fever. He was immediately put in PICU, and put on Respirator and feeding tube because he was aspirating all of his formula. After 1 week he was taken off the Respirator and within 12 hours he was put back on the Respirator because he just couldnt breath on his own.

Avatar f tn Hello, my daughter, age 3, had a bronchoscopy and CT scan after repeated bouts of pneumonia in the same spot, right middle lobe. This all started after a severe RSV/pneumonia hospitalization as an infant. Her CT scan was read as "mild bronchiectasis" in the right middle lobe, same spot as her atelectasis. We know for sure that her last bout of pneumonia in march never fully cleared, b/c we did X-rays every 3 months. So she's had this atelectasis spot for quite awhile now.
