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 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 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 Hi there. Just fyi, UTI's are not contagious. :>) Impossible to catch that from her. As to a respiratory infection---- well, if it is an infection, that also is something less contagious. We pass viruses back and forth. So, if she has a cold, that is something you could catch. If it is an infection and she is on antibiotics, it is probably a cold that turned into a secondary infection. meaning, the mucus got trapped in her chest or sinuses and then became bacterial.
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.
490418 tn?1209523379 SO HE WAS ADMITTED IMMETIATLY AND FLOWN TO THE NEAREST CITY..THERE HE WAS TESTED (+) FOR RSV, A RESPIRATORY VIRUS, WHICH IS WHERE WE ARE NOW, SO FAR HE IS DOING OK., BUT I CANT HELP BUT WORRY ABOUT HIM. _I NOTICED TODAY THAT HIS RIGHT EYE ( DOESNT OPEN AS MUCH )IS LOWER THAN HIS LEFT. AND I AM WONDERING IF THAT IS A LONG TERM PERMANENT THING, IS HIS EYE GONNA BE LIKE THAT FROM NOW ON? MAYBE BECAUSE WHEN HE WAS TAKEN TO THE ER HIS o2 SATURATION WAS SO LOW???
Avatar m tn How long before I have herpes outbreak am I contagious to a male partner, through oral and vaginal sex?
Avatar m tn Dear Laura Lee, Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a virus that can cause significant pulmonary as well as cardiac damage. Without having further information about your son, I can't say exactly what happened with him. I can say that myocarditis, which in children is typically due to a viral infection, causes damage to the heart most likely from both the virus itself as well as the body's immune response.
Avatar n tn is there any chance you can tell me how i could help my cousine should i sew the gp for not detecting the virus and sending her home to be rushed into intensive care 24 hours later ?
1346146 tn?1299360497 Oh man that is rough! RSV is very contagious and can be very damaging so I'm glad they caught it early!
Avatar n tn If I have a typical virus (cold, sore throat, etc.) how long am I typically contagious for? I really hope for an answer soon. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
969557 tn?1314370614 I would always be on the safe side and figure yes I am contagious. How long have you been on treatment? And the virus can come back - viral breakthrough. Not trying to scare you, but if you have not had a pcr since week 4, you need to get one.
Avatar f tn Hi, respiratory syncytial virus is a very common virus that causes cold-like symptoms, but can lead to breathing difficulties. Those who are more prone to develop serious respiratory infections as a result of RSV include premature babies and those born with heart or lung problems. Regards.
