State Getting Increased Reports Of RSV

January 21, 2010, 5:07 PM by Kelli Grant

State Getting Increased Reports Of RSV
The number of H1N1 cases in South Dakota is down, but another contagious virus is now going around.  Doctors are seeing more cases of Respiratory Syncytial Virus, better known as RSV.

RSV usually makes you feel like you have a really bad cold.  But it can sometimes lead to a more serious condition such as pneumonia, especially in babies. Symptoms include coughing, a stuffy or runny nose, sore throat, earache and fever. A baby with the infection can show a lack of energy, act fussy and have a small appetite.

The virus is highly contagious and is easily spread when you cough, sneeze or share food and drinks. Because there are so many kinds of RSV, your body is never immune to it so washing your hands consistently and covering your cough or sneeze are some of the only ways to prevent it from getting around.

You can treat the fever with ibuprofen or acetaminophen. But if you think you or your child may have RSV and are concerned about it leading to something more serious, you should contact your doctor.
