update: its bronchitis my 7 year old grandson has a barking like cough
He had a slight fever. 99.8. Xray revealed bronchitis. So doc started him on a steroid and is running a strep test. Poor kid. Weekend with grandma and he has to be sick.
Is he too old for croup? I'm babysitting him while his mom and dad are out of town. Took him to his soccer practice last night and then this started.
Its not constant but when he coughs ..its definitely a deep bark like sound.
