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
- Runny nose
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
- Intense coughing
- Labored breathing
- Bluish skin color
