Once they have RSV are they immune to it or can they get it again?

Thank you...I guess I'll be making a trip to the ER...he had it bad last year and was in the hospital, now he's been fighting this cold and has developed a "wet" sounding cough! Wish us luck!

Yep, and many do due to weakened lung function.

You can get it continually your entire life.

They thought that my son had it, but after he supposeably had it again..they realized it was asthma that was triggered by colds...so now he has to have breathing treatments everyday in the winter..

Hey Anz....How much should I give him? He's about 21lbs. How do I give it to him?

The health food store has liquid drops for small children...just follow package direction. When my kids are already sick I give them about 1000mg per day, but I give them 500mg daily most days so they are accustomed. Giving too much at first can cause runny poo... Or just start forcing 100% OJ and fresh fruits and vegis on him. Also, eucalyptus and peppermint oil are good for coughs...I mix mine with Coconut oil and use it like Vicks. HTH!
