What Are the Symptoms of Respiratory Syncytial Virus?

Respiratory syncytial virus causes symptoms that are similar to the common cold or the flu. Many adults and children with RSV experience:

  • Low-grade fever
  • Cough
  • Runny nose
  • Congestion
  • Sneezing
  • Headache

Respiratory syncytial virus symptoms tend to develop four to six days after contraction. While adults and older children with RSV usually experience very mild symptoms, children under the age of one are vulnerable to more severe illness and potentially life-threatening complications like pneumonia. Be sure to call 911 or go to the emergency room if any of the following symptoms occur:

  • High-grade fever
  • Wheezing
  • Intense coughing
  • Labored breathing
  • Bluish skin color

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Patient
Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Patient
Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Patient
Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
