Kim Saenz, director of the Hunt Regional Emergency Centers in Commerce and Quinlan, says respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is affecting numerous small children in the Northeast Texas area.  It's similar to a cold, but with worse respiratory symptoms, such as mucus in the nose and throat.  It's generally not life-threatening.  Kim offers some suggestions for treatment.  And she says she has seen a large number of flu cases already this season.
