Adenovirus infection Treatments


Talk with your doctor about the best plan for you. Treatment will depend on the type of infection you have. Treatment options include:

Management of Symptoms

The infections will usually end on its own. The following steps can help you be more comfortable:

  • Getting plenty of rest
  • Drinking extra fluids
  • Using a humidifier
  • Taking acetaminophen or other over-the-counter medications

If you have conjunctivitis, your doctor may have you use warm compresses. You may also have eye ointments or drops.

Fluid Replacement

If you have severe diarrhea or vomiting, fluids may need to be given by IV. This will prevent dehydration.

Medical Treatment

A compromised or weak immune system can lead to a more serious infection. In this case, a doctor may need to administer certain medicines.
