The RSV virus sweeping babies parents urgently need to know about - Birmingham Live

Parents are being warned of an RSV virus spreading among babies in the UK.

Mums and dads should be aware RSV is a very common virus and almost all children are infected with it by the time they're 2 years old.

In older children and adults, RSV may cause a cough or cold, but in young children it can cause bronchiolitis.

Younger children can also pick up RSV from a toy infected with the virus, which can survive on a surface for 24 hours, and then rubbing their eyes, mouth or nose.

HullLive reports Vanessa Brown, senior matron at HRI, said: "We start seeing more and more cases of RSV at this time of the year and we are already seeing an increase in admissions of very young children.

"While the vast majority of children will only experience unpleasant symptoms for a few days, RSV can be more serious for those with existing health conditions, the very young or those who were born prematurely.

"Parents can help prevent their child catching RSV in the first place by taking a few simple steps and recognising the symptoms can help you cope with what can be an anxious time.

"While antibiotics won't help your child, there are steps you can take to make them more comfortable and help them recover well within days."

How the infection is spread

Viruses are spread when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

Tiny droplets of liquid can be breathed in directly from the air or picked up from a surface they have landed on, such as a toy or table.

For example, your child can become infected after touching a toy that has the virus on it and then touching their eyes, mouth or nose.

RSV can survive on a surface for up to 24 hours.

An infected child can remain infectious for up to 3 weeks, even after their symptoms have disappeared.

How it affects the lungs

Once you become infected, the virus enters the respiratory system through the windpipe (trachea).

The virus makes its way down to the smallest airways in the lungs (the bronchioles).

The infection causes the bronchioles to become inflamed (swollen) and increases the production of mucus.

The mucus and swollen bronchioles can block the airways, making breathing difficult.

As babies and young children have small, underdeveloped airways, they're more likely to get bronchiolitis.

Who's most at risk?

Bronchiolitis is very common in infants and is usually mild.

Several things can increase a child's likelihood of developing the infection.

These include:

  • being breastfed for less than 2 months, or not at all
  • being exposed to smoke (for example, if parents smoke)
  • having brothers or sisters who attend school or nursery, as they're more likely to come into contact with a virus and pass it on

There are also a number of factors that can increase the risk of a child developing more severe bronchiolitis.

These include:

  • being under 2 months of age
  • having congenital heart disease
  • being born prematurely (before week 37 of pregnancy)
  • having chronic lung disease of prematurity (when injury to the lungs causes long-term respiratory problems in premature babies)

Symptoms

Most children with bronchiolitis have mild symptoms and recover within 2 to 3 weeks, but it's important to look out for signs of more serious problems, such as breathing difficulties.

Early symptoms of bronchiolitis tend to appear within a few days of becoming infected.

They're usually similar to those of a common cold, such as a blocked or runny nose, a cough, and a slightly high temperature (fever).

The symptoms usually get worse during the next few days before gradually improving.

During this time, your child may develop some of the following symptoms:

  • a rasping and persistent dry cough
  • rapid or noisy breathing (wheezing)
  • brief pauses in their breathing
  • feeding less and having fewer wet nappies
  • vomiting after feeding
  • being irritable

Most cases of bronchiolitis aren't serious, but the symptoms can be very worrying.

Symptoms are usually at their worst between day 3 and day 5. The cough usually gets better within 3 weeks.

When to get medical advice

Medical advice isn't needed if your child has mild cold-like symptoms and is recovering well. You can usually care for your child at home.

But see your GP or contact NHS 111 if you're worried about your child or they:

  • aren't feeding normally (they have taken less than half their usual amount during the last 2 or 3 feeds)
  • haven't had a wet nappy for 12 hours or more
  • are breathing very fast
  • have a persistent high temperature of 38C or above
  • seem very tired or irritable

It's particularly important to get medical advice if your baby is less than 12 weeks old or they have an underlying health condition, such as a congenital (present from birth) heart or lung condition.

When to call 999

While it's unusual for children to need hospital treatment for bronchiolitis, the symptoms can get worse very quickly.

Call 999 and ask for an ambulance if:

  • your child has difficulty breathing or exhaustion from trying to breathe (you may see the muscles under their ribs sucking in with each breath, they may be grunting with the effort of trying to breathe, or they may be pale and sweaty)
  • they're breathing very fast
  • you're unable to wake your child or, if woken up, they don't stay awake
  • their breathing stops for a long time, or there are regular shorter pauses in their breathing
  • their skin turns very pale or blue, or the inside of their lips and tongue are blue (cyanosis)

What’s Going Around: Flu causing brain abscesses for some local students - WFLA

Posted: 19 Feb 2018 12:00 AM PST

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Parents, you know the flu is still going around in big waves, but there are some other illnesses pediatricians are seeing a lot of in the Tampa Bay area.

One of the big things you'll notice is that allergy season is in full swing. Nurses and pediatricians in Pinellas County tell 8 On Your side many school kids are coming in with terrible allergies.  Symptoms are similar to colds and include coughing as well as inflammation to the eyes. This week, pollen is expected to be high in the Tampa Bay area. Doctors say over-the-counter allergy medicines should help ease the symptoms.

The flu is still hanging around. In Pinellas County, some doctors and nurses have actually seen brain abscesses caused by flu. Children who have any change in mental status with flu symptoms should go straight to the ER.

A brain abscess is caused by pus in the brain tissue which can be caused by a bacterial or fungal infection, according to Harvard Medical School. There are three ways an infection can begin:

  • Blood can carry an infection to the brain.
  • As a sinus infection, a middle ear infection, or a dental abscess can turn into a brain infection.
  • An infection can enter the brain through an injury like a gunshot or facial trauma or neurosurgical procedures.

Symptoms for a brain abscess include a dull headache which is on the same side of the brain as the abscess. The headache also does not improve with aspirin or pain medication. Other symptoms can include neck stiffness, seizures, personality changes, low-grade fever and muscular weakness on one side of the body. A brain abscess is treated with antibiotics and draining the abscess.

Doctors in Sarasota County tell 8 On Your Side they are encouraging parents to remind kids to wash their hands at school and cover their mouths when they sneeze and cough. Currently, they are still seeing more patients with flu than with anything else.

In Hillsborough County, RSV is making the rounds. The upper respiratory virus comes with a terrible wheezing cough.  Doctors explain it just has to run it's course, but  make sure, if your child gets it, to keep them hydrated.STORIES OTHERS ARE CLICKING ON-
