My daughter is 20 months and I just discovered she has RSV (respiratory syncytial virus infection). About a week ago I took her to see the doctor for her cough she’d had for almost 2 weeks at that time. He treated her with antibiotics because it had already been that long and her throat showed some redness. Around the 7th day of her 10 day dosing she started to feel worse and now she's throwing up. So I took her back to the doctor and they swabbed her nostril and sure enough she was positive for RSV. The biggest symptom my daughter shows is coughing nonstop while she is sleeping. Sometimes she even gags and ends up throwing up. Her boogers are bright green and she gets this rash on her cheeks and nose. No fever though. I use a humidifier during the day but in the night I use a vaporizer which seems to help her sleep better. I suction her mucus from her nose as well. Hopefully this goes away soon. It is so hard to see your little one not feeling well.
