A common cold virus that packs a wallop is hitting kids hard this season.
We're talking about RSV.
Experts say almost every child gets the virus before they turn two, cause it's a tough one to avoid.
Babies born prematurely are at a much higher risk of having to be hospitalized for RSV.
The symptoms involve more than just a runny nose and cough. A lower respiratory tract problem means they're having trouble breathing so your child would have wheezing and heavy breathing.
Hospitals nation-wide are seeing an increase in cases and the CDC says RSV is also a major cause of illness in older adults.
