In brief: RSV?

Rsv is a virus that is very common in young children.
Unfortrunately, it tends to affect them much worse than adults. In adults it usually presents with a "flu-like" illness and resolves on its own. Should you be experiencing shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, high fevers, or a persistent dry cough - you may need to see your doctor right away or, if severe, go to the er.
