Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a common cause of potentially sever lower respiratory illness in infants. This virus can even lead to hospitalization due to breathing difficulty. Along with other viral respiratory infections, RSV infection may be associated with the development of asthma later on in life.

A recent study suggests that children with RSV lower respiratory infection early in life and go on to smoke tobacco appear to be at increased risk of developing asthma by early adulthood. It is important to continually monitor children for asthma-like symptoms.

Luckily, Wasatch Allergy and Asthma is here to end their suffering no matter what caused the asthma.
