Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Respiratory Syncytial Virus in adults is usually treated with supportive care like oxygen therapy. At times antiviral drugs are given if the symptoms do not settle down. In serious cases the patient is admitted in hospital and kept on supportive measures such as ventilators. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please consult your physician if you are not improving.  Take care!
