220217 tn?1209679677 I loved Mylicon, but still didn't help my boys sleep, did quiet some of the screaming and crying. I hope it continues to work wonders for you! We have battled RSV, and the vaccine isn't offered to all kiddos. I think they only offer it to preemies or high risk kiddos, they have to really do some paperwork to push it through insurance. My boys were term and big, so we were not concerned. Carson got pneumonia at 11 weeks, Cameron got RSV at 10 weeks.
142722 tn?1281533616 She got the oral rotavirus vaccine which is a live virus and she seems to have an upset stomach and is pooping more...possibly just a coincidence. They said the virus will be excreted in her poop for 2 weeks so to be extra careful about washing my hands after I change her so I don't pass it in.
1468158 tn?1363026295 The shot isn't so much for you as it is for the baby. You could have almost no symptoms and still pass on a full blown flu to your new born, which is what your doctor is worried about. You are a healthy individual with a good immune system but that doesn't necessarily mean your newborn will be.
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 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.
593530 tn?1263847957 I brought Brody to his pediatrician last week because he was very congested. After a nose swab was tested it was determined that he has RSV. Since it's a virus it can't be treated with antibiotics, so she instructed me to get a cool mist humidifier and keep his nasal pasages clear by using saline solution. The only symptom he's had is the congestion. There's no fever, coughing, mucous coming out, etc.

Avatar n tn Respiratory Syncytical Virus (RSV) is not a 12-week illness. What may have started as RSV may be something else right now. Reactive Airways Disease (RAD) is a state when a child has been wheezing and the cause is not necessarily defined. When this is short term associated with a particular virus, it is RSV. When this lasts for a longer period, it is often called asthma. The medications used most often for the treatment of this problem are bronchodilators (ventolin is one of these) and steroids.
377012 tn?1283965435 Well, for the 2nd time this year dylan has been diagnosed with RSV......i have no idea how he is getting it since none of the other kids around have it....not unless they are carrying the germ home from school....this drives me crazy! he already as really bad indoor/outdoor allergies and asthma...so what next!!!!
193609 tn?1292180293 Ashtyn got 4 immunizations on Thursday and his monthly RSV vaccine injectiojn on Friday. Today he hwas developed a pimply looking, dark red rash on his leg at the site of his RSV injection. The doctor is calling me any minute now to tell me whether I have to take him to the hospital because I called the nurse-on-call at his ped's office. Has anyone else's child had a reaction to an immunization like this????
478429 tn?1265244387 t get the virus by getting the vaccine. So, with all this being said and with the H1N1 virus running rampant now, I will be getting this vaccine. I know it hasn't been studied that long, but my theory is that Tamiflu and such isn't recommended for p/g woman b/c of the unknown effects on the fetus. So, to me, it's a no win situation on that front. So, I'm going to try to protect my unborn baby and myself so that both of our children can have a mother to share their lives with.
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.
