Dry barking cough

My son is having a dry barking cough and sometimes sounds like he is almost gasping for air, like he can't get air through his airways. What I am wondering is does this sound like he is getting croup again or is this maybe his asthma acting up?

  • I have always had a cough like that. I can do it just clearing my throat. I didn't have croup, nor, was I ever until this year told I have asthma. So, it could be either one or neither. LOL
