Mercy's Dr. Jesse Campbell is warning parents to be on the lookout for respiratory synctial virus, or RSV.
"Usually it gets confused as a really bad head cold or chest cold or parents will come in thinking their child has asthma," said Dr. Campbell in a recent interview with KFOR.
Much like flu season, RSV tends to rise between January and April. One of Dr. Campbell's patients, 20-month-old Levi, has tested positive for RSV twice.
