How did I get herpes? Did my partner cheat? Or did I have it before the relationship? How long can herpes stay dormant? These are some of the questions that people newly diagnosed with genital herpes ask. Here's what we know about how this infection occurs. The first outbreak usually occurs within 2-10 days of exposure to the virus. This outbreak may be a sore or lesion in or around the vagina or on the cervix in women or on the penis and scrotum of men. Men or women can get lesions within the urinary tract, around or inside the anus, on the buttocks, thighs or other parts of the body. Usually the lesions start as reddened bumps which evolve over hours or days into blisters/open sores which crust over, dry up and heal. Sometimes a second crop of lesions occur. The initial infection may be severe and have more generalized symptoms such as fever, headache and muscle aches. However, these lesions are not the only symptom of an initial outbreak. Symptom...
RSV; Palivizumab; Respiratory Syncytial Virus Immune Globulin
Bluish skin color due to a lack of oxygen ( cyanosis )
or labored breathing
Croupy cough (often described as a "seal bark" cough)
Shortness of breath
Note: Symptoms vary and differ with age. Infants under age 1 are most severely affected and often have the most trouble breathing. Older children usually have only mild, cold-like symptoms. Symptoms usually appear 4 - 6 days after coming in contact with the virus.
Signs and tests
Rapid tests for this virus can be done on a fluid sample taken from the nose at many hospitals and clinics.
It is impossible to read any information on ADHD without finding out that the three major symptoms of ADHD are inattention, impulsiveness and hyperactivity. But what does this really mean? What do these symptoms look like on a day to day basis?
Each child is different. Each child has symptoms of ADHD that fall somewhere between mild and severe. Each child has a unique combination of symptoms. Ask any parent. They can go into detail on their child's behavior and their description might have some similarities to another parent's stories, but there will be differences as well. If this is the case, how then, can we figure out what is ADHD, what is normal behavior, and what might be something else entirely?
The following lists are compilations of how the three major symptoms may show up. It will be up to each family to decide if the behaviors warrant consideration, accommodations, behavioral interventions or medication to help in reducing symptoms.
