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 There is a wide spectrum of severity of illness related to Reactive Airways Disease (RAD). When this is persistent, most are more inclined to use the term asthma. If your child has had the symptoms you describe, the diagnosis of RAD is fairly common.
1347128 tn?1333810296 her doctor told me to get a humidifier and put it in the same room as the baby and turn or you could also turn on the hot water and get it steamy in there while you have your baby in there and that could help also, i did both of those thing with her and it helped alot!! also use salt water and squeeze it up your childs nose and suction it all out and do that before and after feedings and before bed also and when your baby wakes up . if your baby does not clear up in like 2.
Avatar n tn My son had RSV when he was 2 weeks old and was in the hospital for 2 weeks....He is now 10 and has never had any lung problems, That is realey the onley time he has ever been sick...Hope this helps..i will be praying for ur familey....
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.
1636573 tn?1300257994 My baby was born DEc 30th premature. I was 34 weeks he was in NICU for 3 weeks. The first day we got home he seemed sick well I found out he had RSV. He was on treatments for a few weeks then stopped. He cleared up and now he is bout 2 1/2 months old. He has doubledhis birth weight but now he is having trouble eating. And he wheezes when he breaths, and breaths fast. No cough. But he has always breath fast. And his lungs always sound clear.
Avatar n tn My eleven year old daughter has experienced odd symptoms from about four weeks of age. It seems as though she gets everything that comes along. We are frustrated to say the least. The list seems long: -Elevated biliruben for 5 weeks at birth -RSV and double pneumonia at 6wks -ongoing colds and pneumonias (no less than annual) and strep rashes -RSV at age 2 again requiring hospitalization -Age 2-4 spontaneous vomitting on about a 30 day cycle.
649670 tn?1314366634 Pyper began to get sick on 11/15 with a high fever. We took her to the doctors on the 16th and they said she had another ear infection and an upper respiratory infection and put her on antibiotics. She threw up almost every morning after eating because of the mucus. I called the Dr's office at least 3 times throughout the week because she had a fever everyday.
172411 tn?1287086265 ve worked in preschool for nearly twenty years and I see RSV every year in the kids - the doctor is right, it needs to work itself out - some of the children who end up in the hospital end up there due to parents who don't pay attention to symptoms and don't follow dr's advice or children with compromised immune systems and sometimes children who have existing respiratory issues such as asthma, etc.
Avatar n tn My son is going to be 2 months old soon and a couple of days after he was born they told me he has RSV, i have been in and out of the hospital so many times and he dose not seem to be getting any better. I have read everybody stories and How they lost their loved ones and i am so scared that it might happen to my son. Please is there anything that i can do to prevent this from getting worse???
Avatar f tn A few moments later, the babysitter walked up the hallway and stood at the doorway of the living room with my baby limp and blue in her arms, and all she said was that she found her face down in her pillow. She proceeded to lay my baby down on one of her couches, and she went and sat on the other one. By this time, my boyfriend and I were already hysterical and I remember screaming at the top of my lungs and falling on my knees to the floor. I knew it was already too late by that time.
377012 tn?1283965435 has been back and forth to the doctor with allergies, asthma, and other complications such as RSV he has been diagnosed with RSV twice in the past 3 months the last time was 6 weeks ago, and it has cleared up since! this morning he started coughing, having a runny nose, discharge from his eyes and wet coughing as well....i was just wanting to know how i could tell if he has fluid in his lungs????
Avatar f tn I had mt baby at 36 weeks.. when he was only 18 days old he was rsv positive. Has anyone ever gone through this?
Avatar f tn m doing everything in my power to get him better and by me doing that he needs a lot of attention and my baby girl is definitely feeling some way. How do I balance it. Has anyone gonna through this.
Avatar f tn also his pediatrician said anytime the baby breaths in and you can see the outline of the bones in his ribcage that means the baby is probably having trouble breathing, also i dont know if you know anyone with asthma but if the baby is breathing like someone having an asthma attack that is another sign to call the doctor. Hope your son feels better and hope i was some help! good luck!
1347128 tn?1333810296 My baby had RSV at the beginning of november, he was hospitalized for 3 days 2 nights. he was 6 weeks old. But since then, he has a phlegm sound and boogers, he has trouble breathing speacially during the night and when he wakes up. He uses humedifier all the time, and I am just sad that he doesnt get any better today his pediatrician told me he is negative for RSV, what else can I do to help him get better?
Avatar f tn RSV infections generally occur during fall, winter, and early spring. The timing and severity of RSV circulation in a given community can vary from year to year. If other children in your community show symptoms then it is probable that the infection is present. Usually children show symptoms within 4 to 6 days of infection. Most will recover in 1 to 2 weeks. If his symptoms persist, you should consult your doctor. Regards.
1189189 tn?1264549687 At times antiviral drugs are given if the symptoms do not settle down. In serious cases the patient is admitted in hospital and kept on supportive measures such as ventilators. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please consult your physician if you are not improving. Take care!
Avatar f tn ve been reading your post and researching a bit to see if I can be of help, as your child sounds quite ill in his lower respiratory tract. The RSV can be a serious virus in young children. Were you told much about it? Did the pulmonologist (hopefully you're seeing a specialist!) explain why he/she thinks your son was having these difficulties? Usually a full term baby - even one with asthma doesn't have so many other respiratory disorders.
Avatar f tn That depends in the severity of the RSV. Right now my daughter (she's 18 months) has a very mild version of RSV.
Avatar n tn Maybe go for a second opinion. I would.. It very well could be RSV. My daughter has alot of the same symptoms and they are tryign to figure out what it is.. does he seem to be in distress when his lips turn blue... or does anything about him change when he has a fever... or coughing??? If your doctor isnt giving you proper advice. Go get a second opinion.
Avatar f tn increase in breathing rate or of effort to breathe, fever, poor appetite, and dehydration. If you have any question, call your local children's hospital and ask to speak with a nurse or a physician's assistant (PA). Your baby will probably be fine. Respiratory syntactical virus (RSV) infection combined with a family history of asthma, increases his likelihood of having asthma. But the increased likelihood, due to family history, does not worsen the RSV. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I just had my son at 33 weeks 6 days. If anyone on here has had preemies before my question is how long after you brought baby home did you stay in the house? I didn't get a definite answer from my doctor or the hospital. He is now almost 3 weeks and doing well just above 6 pounds. I've heard other moms say right away is okay another said one year!!! I have errands and appointments plus my 5 year old has to be taken and picked up from school during the week.
Avatar f tn I've never heard of that other than in dogs I raise dogs and unfortunately lost two about 5 years ago to parvo but we never got it ourselves.
148691 tn?1260194903 I'm so sorry RSV stinks. My little guy got RSV 2 winters ago and was in the hospital for over a week with it. Just keep a close eye on her and if you see things getting worse take her back in right away. It's common but can turn ugly quickly. Good luck.
