Common Questions and Answers about Rsv in two month old


372328 tn?1214776427 I would suggest you take her in now, just to rule out RSV (peak season runs from Oct -March). It's a quick nose swab test. When my daughter was 9 mo old, she had similar symptoms and I wish i hadn't waited so long. She did have RSV and needed nebulizer treatments to help treat it. Had I waited another day or so, we probably would have ended up in the hospital. Don't mean to scare you, but RSV can be very serious in kids under 2.
Avatar f tn My six month old has RSV! He was tested positive for it two days ago. He is not eating much at all and on amoxicillin. His fever is gone now but he is still breathing fast and still very raspy! The hospital told me that RSV would not affect his appetite it was because his nose was stuffed up???? How long does it usually take for his breathing to get better?? I always thought that most babies with RSV were hospitalized. Isnt there something else they could give him to improve his breathing.
Avatar n tn I have 22 month old that has been healthy and always got the flu shot. Since she was born, we have always noticed her feet and fingers would get bluish in color and cold. I was told she would grow out of this. Now going on 2 yrs here this March, the more she is active, jumping, singing, and running, her lips and fingers are cold as ice and blue in color.

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 I am not sure my now 6 year old son, Chris got a severe case of RSV when he was 5 weeks old. I also had a 20 month at home with a "cold" My 20 month old, Gary was never tested for RSV because he wasn't in distress. Chris got it again when he was 2 1/2 years old and it was the middle of summer.

Avatar n tn My 23 month old was hospitalized 2 weeks ago with RSV and pneumonia. He slept 12 hours at night prior to his illness. The 3 nights before he was hospitalized he was so sick he would only sleep in my arms day or night- In the hospital this was the same. After he was discharged from the hospital he will sleep in his crib but wakes up freq. crying out for us until we have to go in to him and rock him back to sleep which sometimes takes FOREVER!! What do I do????
Avatar f tn My two year old has been sick almost none stop over the past year. It seems as soon as antibotics get out of his system he get sick again. Since last June he has ran a temp at least once a month(usually more). He was treated for RSV about 2 weeks ago and is also being treated for asthma symptoms. He finished a round of antibotics about a week ago and as of last Friday has started running fever again. It generally runns between 99-101 but has recently started rising to 103-104.5(it was 104.

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 f tn We took him to the emergency room because his 6 month old cousin was hospitalized with RSV they are around eachother everyday so I wanted him to get checked. He has increased markings on his bronchi that look like an infection but they did not give him anything for it. He's had his cough for about a week. Very congested, is there really nothing they can give him?
Avatar n tn the doctor said there was an enlargement and he thinks it may have been due to a vessel when my son was younger. he had RSV when he was two months old. he has never been operated on. do heart enlargements disappear? do they affect my sons life in anyway? and, should I be worried?
Avatar n tn A persistent fever, cough, and production of green mucus in an infant of 4 months old SHOULD be evaluated in more than the cursory method you described by her physician. I can understand on the first visit perhaps not putting her thru a detailed investigation. But definately on the subsequent visits furthur investigations should have been done.
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 n tn The medications used most often for the treatment of this problem are bronchodilators (ventolin is one of these) and steroids. Using inhalers in 10-month-old children is very difficult. They do not inhale very well and thus the medication is not delivered very well to the lungs. If the wheezing continues to be a problem, I would suggest seeing a specialist who will most likely recommend using a nebulizer.
Avatar n tn I have a two yr old and a two month old that have whooping cough. After taking my children to the doctor for several weeks they finally swabbed their nose to test for whooping cough. There is no doubt that both children have it. The clinic doesn't seem to be concerned or hurry to get our test results back. I know it takes about five to seven days. The clinic told m today it would be nine days before they will call me. I am very concerned about the two month old.

676606 tn?1229937962 Ok I have a long question...I have a 3year old daughter....she is in daycare...she has always seemed to be more sick then my other two 7weeks she was hospitalized for RSV...and the months to follow it was illness after another...croup, fifth disease, rotroviruses, recurrent ear infections, and lots of "colds"....Last feb. started a long long road...she was seen at the er...with sinusitis and strep throat...the thing is she never got better...
Avatar f tn When my 4 year old had RSV when he was 5 weeks old, also on a vent for 11 days, (he had RSV a second time when he was 2 1/2 in the hospital 5 days no vent.) they said he could end up having asthma. Every time we go see the pulmonologist *sorry if I spelled it wrong, they ask how often does he couh at night. None, doen't cough in the day time either only when he is sick. So from what I was told and understand it does sound like he has asthma.
Avatar n tn my son was on life support from rsv too. he was two weeks old. he made it but is still very sick months later..
