I was informed tonight that my 19 1/2 month old daughter was exposed to rsv at her daycare. I read all that I could on the internet. Should I be worried about this at her age? She has a small cough, and her cheeks have been rosy all week.
The infant in her daycare room was sent home ill last week. The mother brought the child back 2 days later saying the child had been to the doctor and is fine. Then the daycare sent the infant home again because he didn’t seem well at all. The mother called after taking the infant to the doctor today. He was diagnosed with rsv. I’m not sure if the infant was “really” taken to the doctor last week for the illness or not. I’m wondering if the mother just said that so she could return to work. I’d really like to know if the infant was seen last week or not, because he has the same doctor as my child. (wondering if doc overlooked rsv)
Am I being too over protective? The daycare owner was very upset about all of this.
