My 17 month old has croup & has been on medicine since Tuesday. The dr told us that the cough should get better within a day or two but my poor little guy still sounds awful & isn't able to sleep at night. So does anyone know of any natural ways to help speed up the healing process??
My 2yr dd just had this last week. She had stridor on top of the croup. I put a cool mist humidifyer in her room. She was put on prednizone for the stidor. It took a good 5days for the cough to wind down. She would wake up at least once a night coughing and I stood her in front of the fridge with the door open and the cool air would let her catch her breath. Also, I put vicks vapor rub on her chest and back, she seemed to breath better with it on.
