Rsv in two month old

Common Questions and Answers about Rsv in two month old


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?1209526979 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 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 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.
Avatar f tn My 3-month-old DD has had a cough for the last two days. It is almost like she just has phlemn in her throat and doesn't know how to clear it. My older DS has been sick with a sinus infection. I also teach kindergarten and many of my students have been sick. I just keep waiting for her to get sick. Anyway, she is not running fever and is sleeping and eating good. She acts fine, she just starts rattling a little bit until she coughs and then she sounds fine again.

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.
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.

1259420 tn?1269621342 No fever any of the days after admittance. I also have a 3 year old and a 2 year old who have been battling RSV and bronchitis ever since the 3 year old started nursery school in Sept. My baby seems like a little petri dish for the other two. he has had RSV once and 3 colds and had to use a nebulizer with xoponex once for the RSV in December. Never any ear infections or other to report to date. March 10th he developed a 104.4 fever.
Avatar f tn I have a 6 month old baby girl. About two months ago she had an episode of eyes rolling back and liquid coming from nose and tears from eye. It happened a couple in a row. After that, she was pretty quiet (comparing to her normal behaviour) for about 5 days.We got her to her doctor, who said that everything is fine "babies can do weird things", and also we got her to ER, but again the doctor there, said she was ok. He suggested to do en EEG to rest our mind.
Avatar f tn But I would think that she would be in pain all day, not just when she sleeps. I think in a week or two, they will be in completely. Let me know what the dr says. Now I'm starting to think that maybe I should call our Dr. but she's perfectly fine during the day time. I'm so confused.
377493 tn?1356505749 I guess I am looking for others to tell me this isn't completely abnormal. My 14 month old just got over rota virus. It seemed he had it forever. His weight dropped to 17 lbs. Since then he has had a runny nose and cough, but has seen the Dr. twice and she mainly chalked it up to the dry cold we are experiencing. His lungs were clear. So it was annoying for him, but he wasn't sick. Just as his weight was getting up there again (almost 19lbs) he got sick again.
118225 tn?1278658540 she has not had an infection of ANY kind in months.... she has NEVER had an ear infection and has just had RSV once when she was under 3 months... so, I'm for the 'feed-them-a-good-variety' kind... they'll be less picky by them time they reach the age of 1... and healthier. Maddie has never choked on anything either. But I make sure she doesn't stuff her mouth, or bites off a big chunk of anything. They have gag reflexes!
Avatar m tn said Polack, who is also affiliated with the INFANT Foundation in Buenos Aires. In the late 1960s, children in Washington, DC received an RSV vaccine in which the virus was inactivated with formalin. Eighty percent of the children given the shot were hospitalized with severe respiratory disease, and two died. Many scientists had thought the formalin was responsible for the vaccine's problems, but the chemical has been used safely in other vaccines.
15480 tn?1302533402 Can anyone recommend a good car seat for a 9 month old-one that can be rear facing and then face forward in 3 months. She is pretty big, about 20 lbs. Thanks for your help!
676606 tn?1229941562 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 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).
Avatar f tn Hi all, I want to apologize for a long post, but I feel like all the information is helpful in explaing my situation. I have an 8-month-old daughter who was perfectly healthy until she was 5-months-old and cold and flu season started. She has had a mix of viruses including RSV and two ear infections, therefore has been on prednisone twice and three antibiotics. The last week in February she came down with what we thought was another virus and began vomiting only at night.

Avatar n tn I was also fed the virus thing until they told me that a 2 year old will have 8-10 viruses in a year.My son had 10 in a 5 month span.They then said to me that his immune system is not working properly and then did an immune panel on him and that came back fine. so he has a good immune system. at the moment they are watching his neutrophils as they are still on the low side and he has a lymph node on his neck that they are watching too.
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 Hello I have a 10 year old son who has always been the one to get all the weird stuff and I really am looking to find some opinions as my next venture will be finding a doctor out of town. My son was healthy except for eczema pretty bad as an infant at birth but at 4mos developed RSV and was hospitalized and has since had asthma and does have allergy problems.
162948 tn?1205256292 We have a whole de-gassing routine, like baby massage/gymnastics, we do on our 3 month old to express the gas (it's rather comical but once she passes it she stops grunting and/or fussing). I'm curious as to how they prescribed meds for an infant when as you say he only "thinks maybe" it's reflux.
Avatar n tn According to statistics, over 125,000 infants are hospitalized annually with Respiratory Syncytial Virus, resulting in more than 500 deaths. RSV can be contracted by placing your hand in your mouth after you have come in contact with an infected person or surface. It can also be contracted by being in close proximity of an infected person who sneezes or coughs. The Synagis Vaccine can help protect your little ones from the effects of RSV.
Avatar n tn My son is 6and 1/2 months old. A few months ago we all developed a cold in the family. Steven my baby got better with the cold but he started wheezing and coughing. We had taken him to er for several times and he was diagonized with bronchities. He was given nabulizer and his doctor also instructed us to use the nebulizer machine at home. We did that for about a month and half but the wheezing goes off and on. Last week steven was seen again by the doctor and he said we be back in 3 months.
