My 4 year old has croup for the 5th or 6th time...

Has anyone had any experience with this reoccuring with their kids?

  • Yes, some kids are more prone to it than others. If my son gets a head cold..boom croup. Warm apple juice helps. Our pulmonologist says cold drinks will trigger coughing with croup as well as asthma.

  • Yes. My middle son had croup attacks starting when he was a baby till age 7 when he finally outgrew it. So each time it would come on we would do the moist, humid air, or go out into the night air and a few times we ended up at the ER for breathing treatments.

  • My son had it a couple times as a baby but that was it. I know how awful it is to see them got through this too. It sounds so bad.
