Avatar n tn My husband has just gotten over a 24hr stomach bug last week(severe nausea,vomiting, diarrhea, aches) 6 day later I have come down with appearently the same thing, even after Lysoling the entire house. I have 2 young children (2 yrs. and 3 months). How long is the virus contagious? The 2 year old has already had 2 stomach bugs this winter in Dec. and Feb. When we are ill we are trying to avoid the children as much as possible, but when is it okay to be around them again?
Avatar n tn One more thing, the best thing you could do is keep removing the warts and have a healthy life style, sleep well, eat healthy food, stop smoking & alcohol use if you do, have multi vitamins especially those contain vitamin C & follic acid and do regular excercises... this is best to help your immune get more strength...
Avatar n tn but the better is to get rid of them with a medical intervention since they are highly contagious and you might spread it to others or other places on your body... if you do not get any recurrance of warts within 6 months of their treatment you may consider yourself cured... whether the virus goes dorment or fully eradicated from your body is currently a matter of conflict among experts and researches...

540911 tn?1263191014 last night i was nauseous and peeing every hour...then i start getting paranoid. i haven't been taking my pills as often as i should, so i come on here. now, i started bleeding the last time i think because i missed a few pills...if we assume that july 4th was the start of my cycle, the last day we bd'd was the 18th before he left...i count what day that would've been...****, the 15th. so i quickly go to my fertility friend chart from where i was pregnant with my last kid.
593530 tn?1263847957 How long it took to get rid of virus? my daugter is 4 weeks old and she got RSV. She was hospitalized for 3 days and was being monitored for her oxygen levels. She is still coughing a lot and its hard to watch her. Doc said it can take upto a month or 2 to fully recover.
Avatar n tn s immune system usually beats the virus and you are no longer contagious. How long can I really expect to be contagious to others? Thank you very much for your help.
Avatar f tn She does need help but you did the right thing you have to look out for your baby first. I don't think she should have even asked you knowing it's contagious and you are pregnant she should just ask someone else or that was nice of you to look for someone else to go instead of you .
Avatar m tn take that same smile n2 the streets are wherever you may be! And when people see ur smile they will say how can you smile n a world full of tormoil then you can respond by saying God woke me up this morning!!!
Avatar n tn I think you should step up and talk to both of these gals you've been with in the last month or so. Let them know that you've been diagnosed with genital herpes and you have no idea how long you've had it. That way they know that they need to get themselves tested to find out what their own status is. Wouldn't you want someone to do the same for you?

Here are a few tips for RSV prevention: Minimize the number of visitors into your home and in contact with your infant. Require any visitors and persons who come in contact with your infant to wash their hands before touching him or her. Do not allow sick people into your home or near your infant.

Avatar m tn The area of the outbreak is contagious from the onset ( tingly or itching ) until the blisters have broken and crusted over,if you can it is wise to cover the area with a dry dressing to avoid skin to skin contact with a partner,I don't know how contagious you are genitally because I personally have had very conflicting information on this, I myself only ever have a very minute outbreak on my back and never genitally but until I can get definate information on how the virus is working genita
Avatar m tn Ladies for those of you who have small children, PLEASE PLEASE BE VERY CAAREFUL. This virus is very contagious and even if an adult has a common cold it can be passed to the baby and turn into RSV. Clean all countertops and surfaces where you keep baby stuff and ensure your carpert/hardwood floors are well clean. The virus can live in those kinds of surfaces. EVEN IN CLOTHES!
Avatar f tn Dif your son cough last long after the virus
Avatar f tn A teacher that I work with has a baby in the hospital with RSV. She emailed that if you baby has a cough with no fever, please take them to get checked for RSV. My DD is 6 months old and has had a chronic cough for a long time. It seems to get better and then starts all over again. I have taken to the doctor for it three times, the last time a week ago today. Everytime they check her really good and say it is just drainage from a cold. She has not had any fever and feels good.
Avatar n tn I wrote not long ago concerning my daughter dying of RSV complicated by bacterial brochopneumonia. I finally got the microscopic examination back and it confirmed what the protocol stated. I guess the only thing I would like to know is "WAS ANY OF THIS DETECTABLE?????" Brooklynn was very health, but developed a cold that the doctor(Monday) stated he thought her ear infection was her problem.
