  • It can be. My grandson had croupe and it had similar symptoms. I would go to a doctor. With kids its so hard to tell and its better to be safe.

  • Well, if it was my child I would wait to take them to the doc's. To ease the syptoms in the mean time I would give her a teaspoon of honey (assuming that she is over a year of age) otherwise do not give it to her. Honey is a natural germ killer, and it also soothes inflamed tissue.

  • You might want to call your Doctor's Phone Number for the On-Call Nurse... Talk to her and see what to do. She might want you to monitor her temperature, maybe to give her some Motrin or Tylenol. Is she running a fever? Is she acting ok? Make sure she gets her liquids! Call the DR. Good Luck, hun.
