My l yr. old grandson had a fever recently. The next morning when his mom
went to get him he was limp. He was taken to a hospital where they said
he had a seizure, they gave him antibiotics, said l ear was a little red.
At follow up appt. with his pediatrician , parents were told he had RSV.
What is this? Will he outgrow it? Where did he get it? Are his two
sisters (6 & 7), at risk or did they give it to him? Is this serious?
From what I understand, RSV is a viral infection that is usually present in hospitals. My son has had it while in the hospital for an extended period.
As with any just about every virus, RSV is infectius. RSV is not a life time infection or causes any lasting effect, as far as I know. Your grandson probubly had a feveral seizure.
As a parent, I don't know for sure, but this is what I have thought RSV is.
