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.
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.

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 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 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 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 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 f tn My son had rsv and the hospital kept him and thankfully we were released in a few hours because his breathing was better.its scary to do that at home, honestly they should of kept him he's only an infant !

Avatar f tn I went to my 18 wk sonogram yesterdayand told doc my 14 month old has rsv. A respitory virus and that now i have cold like symptoms and a rash on my face. She said i coukd have parvo and they drew blood to find out for sure but i don't have results yet. She says my baby can become anemic and can need a blood transfusion while in the womb. I am so terrified.
Avatar f tn My 18 month old son has had a constant rattle in his chest along with a runny nose. We have been told for a year that it was allergies and gave him over the counter meds which did not work. I finally took him to an allergy specialist who tested him and said he has no allergies that they could find. Did a chest xray and he had mucous in his lungs along with a partially collapsed lung. Put him on steroids and antibiotics. It still did not go away so we went to a lung specialist.
