What Are the Signs of RSV?
RSV symptoms can vary from one person to another depending on the individual’s age and the severity of the infection.
RSV in Babies
RSV infections develop most frequently in babies. When an infant is infected with this virus, they might experience symptoms such as:
- Fast, shallow breathing
- Difficulty breathing
- Poor feeding
RSV in Older Children & Adults
Although RSV infections are most common in babies, they can affect individuals of all ages. RSV symptoms in older children and adults often include:
- Runny nose
- Dry cough
- Sore throat
- Low-grade fever
But if an RSV infection is especially serious, it may also cause a severe cough, wheezing, difficulty breathing, rapid breathing, and blue-tinged skin.
