Keep observing: If no fever or severe cough or breathing problems, then recommend treating the RSV as the typical cold virus it is for children this age. If kids are healthy then RSV is only generally dangerous for young infants and toddlers. Recommend saline spray for the nose and a vapor rub for the chest to help the symptoms. See your doctor for fever, worsening cough, or any new concerns. Good luck! ...Read more

My daughter has a fever breathing heavy threw up once runny nose and a cough should I take her in or can I wait till tomorrow?

My daughter has a fever breathing heavy threw up once runny nose and a cough should I take her in or can I wait till tomorrow?

It depends: It depends on how old your child is, and how sick she seems to be acting. If you get the fever down a bit with tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen, and she perks up and feels better for a while, that's fairly reassuring that it isn't too serious. If you get the fever down and she still feels terrible, can't keep down fluids, or has more trouble breathing, take her to the doctor tonight. ...Read more

My son has low grade fever , runny nose and cough , now he is breathing fast and it seems like retractions .Do i wake him up or wait till morning?

Don't wait: If he is having retractions, that is concerning and should be evaluated now. Does he have a history of wheezing or asthma? If so, and you have a nebulizer or inhaler with albuterol, you should give him a treatment. If that doesn't help, he should be seen by the doctor. If he doesn't have any previous history, he should be seen by the doctor to determine the cause of his fast breathing. ...Read more

Not recommended: There has been no proof that cough medicines are helpful in children, and most combo otc meds are for 4-6 and older year old children., if you supress a cough in a wheezing child you can make her worse by supressing the cough defense mechanism. Try humidifier, suction, with or without saline. ...Read more
