Healthy children infected with RSV do not usually need medical attention, and most RSV infections go away on their own in a week or two. If your child gets sick with RSV symptoms, in most cases, they should stay home and avoid contact with other people except to get medical care. If your child is very sick or you are worried about your child’s illness, contact your healthcare provider right away. It is also important to talk to your healthcare provider before giving your child non-prescription medicines, since some medicines contain ingredients that are not recommended for children.
