RSV warning sign

The respiratory syncytial virus (known as RSV) causes an infection called bronchiolitis. The infection spreads among people by coughing and sneezing.

Infection begins with the symptoms of a cold (snot, cough, sneeze, fever). The warning signs are:

* Fast or stuffy breathing

* Wheezing when exhaling

* Eating disorders (for babies, this is because they only breathe through the nose).

Symptoms often get worse at night. The illness usually begins to improve after a few days.

In very young children (less than 3 months old), premature babies, or children with lung or heart problems, the infection may worsen and last longer.

You cannot take medicine to cure bronchiolitis.

Paracetamol (recommended dose) for children may help the child feel more comfortable in the presence of fever.

Infants with severe infections may be hospitalized. In hospitals, treatment may include oxygen and water. The fluid is usually given through the nasogastric tube (the tube that enters the nose).

Make sure your child is getting enough water. Smaller feeds given more often may help.

Dropping or spraying saline solution available from a pharmacy (eg festival) into each nostril before feeding may help clean the nose.

Keep your child away from cigarette smoke.

Preventing the spread of the infection, especially during the first few days of the illness, by keeping the child away from other small children.
