Is it a Cold or is it RSV?
It’s that time of year – if you don’t have a cold or haven’t had one yet, it seems only a matter of time before you or your kids will have one. You probably know that colds are caused by a wide range of viruses, which is the main reason why we can’t ever seem to stop catching one. You may have also heard of a specific virus known as RSV or Respiratory Syncytial Virus. Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is one of the specific viruses which causes mild, cold-like symptoms.

An ear infection is an inflammation of the middle ear that occurs when fluid builds up behind the eardrum. Ear infections are usually caused by bacteria. Although adults can get ear infections, they are far more common in children, and five out of six children will have at least one ear infection by their third birthday.

Integrity Urgent Care Health Handbook – Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease
Hand, foot, and mouth disease is a virus (sometimes referred to as the coxsackievirus), that commonly affects children under the age of five. Occasionally, older children and adults can be affected as well. Although hand, foot, and mouth disease can be incredibly uncomfortable for your child, it is rarely serious, and complications are very rare. Because it is a virus, there is no cure, but treatment can help ease his or her symptoms.
