Like common cold: In adults and older, healthy children, symptoms of respiratory syncytial virus are mild and typically mimic the common cold. Self-care measures are usually all that's needed to relieve any discomfort.RSV can become serious in older adults, adults with heart and lung diseases, or anyone with a very weak immune system (immunocompromised).
