What Is RSV?

What Is RSV

One of our worst fears is our baby getting sick. It’s even worse when we don’t know what the illness is. The respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, is an upper respiratory tract virus.

Early Indicators

RSV is a similar to a common cold, which means it has similar indicators. Some symptoms of RSV include the following:

  • Coughing
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fever
  • Difficulty breathing

This illness has a contagious period of about a week. Some people are susceptible to more infections during the course of this illness, especially of the ears. RSV can also develop into bronchiolitis, which is a lower respiratory infection.
