Avatar n tn If the adult has the RSV, then the infant can be at risk. It spreads easily from person to person through the contact of respiratory secretions. Factors that contribute to infants and small children for developing severe RAV infection: Infants born premature; Infants less than 6 weeks old; Infants with congenital heart disease; those with chronic lung issues; and immunodeficiency.
Avatar f tn If a person does not have RSV can they cause an infant to get RSV just by having a common cold
Avatar m tn an infant has rsv i would like to know if a res.monitor is good for him and if the parents smoke could that cause any more harm. Also when a mother is pregnant and smoking and during delivery and smoking how much harm could that cause an infant?
Avatar f tn CJ was very similar as a newborn, turns out when we all went to get out flu shots when he was an infant, he picked up RSV, which is essentially a persistent cold in infants and generally only causes problems with preemies or otherwise immunosuppressed infants. His simply presented as a persistent slew of cold symptoms and a chronic productive cough. Anyway, it caused me a great deal of grief, though admittedly CJ seemed less bothered by it than I was.
Avatar f tn My 4 year old is always getting sick. He had RSV as an infant and has croup at least twice a year. He had the flu 3 weeks ago an now has croup cough again with fever. Is it normal for a child to have so many fevers repeatedly? Should I look into things?
Avatar f tn My 11 week has rsv .. He was full term .. Has any other mother had this in a infant ..
Avatar n tn a cold will, and if you are implying your baby is premature then you need to call his or her pediatrician as premature babies are eprone to RSV which is a very dangerous respertory illness in children yet alone a premature infant.
284738 tn?1283106819 he just got his 3rd and last synagis until rsv season starts back up again in october. the good news is, rsv season is almost over. unfortunately, our little ones got it at the very end. :( i know it's still out there even when it's not in season, but it's not as bad... hope your little one gets better soon!!
Avatar f tn My son was born at 33 weeks and only weighed 1038grams (2 pound 4) he was on oxygen (nasal prongs) for 4 days when he was born but four months later he was RSV positive and on oxygen for 10 days, he is just starting to crawl now. He did cry for a split second before the next jolt of his arms but no longer cries when he has these jolts. They last about 15- 20 seconds. They seem to happen within the first hour of waking from a sleep. They dont happen daily but he has had two within half an hour.
Avatar f tn I would be really careful my daughter was a preemie and as soon as we got home she ended up back in the hospital with rsv because this is the time of year its out. And because she was so small she almost died and ended up in a childrens hospital for 5 weeks. It was horrible.
Avatar m tn My daughter is 6months old, and she has had a chronic cough for 12 weeks. She had RSV, and hospitalized for 4 days in January. One month later she had Croup and Para Influenza. I periodically give her an inhaler, but I am wondering if she has asthma or allergies? No one is a smoker in the house, and there is NO history of asthma in the family... Do I need to see a specialist? HELP.
Avatar n tn During the course of this viral infection, a child can develop a secondary bacterial infection. The symptoms of this infection can be more severe in nature than the RSV and lead to higher temperature and greater difficulty. This can happen quite quickly. The source of this infection could be from the ears or sinuses or directly into the lungs. I hope this helps answer some of your questions.
Avatar n tn Every time we meet with a new doctor we are always asked if she had RSV as an infant. I would assume that many of the same preventative measures you will be taking for your son's healthy lung care will be much the same as preventative asthma measures. Good luck to you and your little one.
Avatar f tn Hi. May I ask the reason why your son has undergone a battery of laboratory and imaging procedures very early in his life? What symptoms did he have which prompted you to consult with a doctor in the first place? A lot of things can account for a slightly elevated white cell count (it can even be a normal "leukemoid "reaction), and it may help me answer your questions better if you can provide additional information. Hoping to hear more from you soon.
Avatar n tn Lymphocyte% 71. Lymphocyte # 8.3. She came back neg. for flu although they noted minor flu symptoms, RSV was negative, and her chest x-ray showed what may have been viral pnuemonia, however she had a chest x-ray 1 month previous and it had showed the same thing with no change. Does anyone have a clue as to what these #'s mean? She is not getting worse but on the other hand she is not getting better.
Avatar f tn RSV is a very serious complication with children under the age of 2, but it can affect anyone. It is a severe upper respiratory infection. If you've taken her to get checked out she has a clean bill of health, trust your docs! They take RSV very seriously. My newborn niece had RSV. She had a rattly cough in her lungs and had to have breathing treatments.
Avatar f tn RSV is one thing that I am really worried about. That is why I have taken Anna to the doctor 3 different times for the same cough. They always say her lungs are clear and have never even mentioned RSV to me. She feels fine during the day and is eating well. She has no fever and isn't seeming to have trouble breathing. Do you think she could still have RSV? My reason for not going back to the doctor is that where I live, flu and a serious stomach virus are really bad.
Avatar m tn aiave taken her to the er to be tested for pnuemonia and rsv and the results came back negative. She had a temp of 101.7 efore we went into the er and the doctor told us to give her 0.8ml of infant tylenol to cool her down. ive given her one dose a day for the last 3 days and her fever has broken, but now my concern is why when i take her temp its 97.7 i thought a normal temp is 98.7.
Avatar n tn t know much about the specific levels in the blood tests. I do know that if an infant gets RSV, that he is VERY susceptible to all types of respiratory infections after that. It also usually causes permanent lung damage, and often asthma. Has his immune system function been checked? This could be VERY important. There are several hereditary conditions in which the immune system doesn't work properly. There is nothing wrong with getting a 2nd opinion. A good Dr. would welcome a 2nd opinion.
