In brief: Multiple
Rsv has many symptoms and they can vary by age.
It is most dangerous for infants, especially less than 6 months of age. Typically there is cough, nasal congestion, wheezing and coarse breath sounds, and fever. For an older child or adult, the symptoms generally mimic that of the common cold. In either case, time and supportive care are the best treatments.
