How long does the croup cough last??
 
My dd ended up in the ER with croup last Monday, she is 11 weeks old. She had tests for her fever, steroid shot for the stridor, and a breathing treatment. We were sent gome from her doc the next day with breathing treatments. She is STILL coughing, not tons though and as of a few days ago finally sleeping better at night. Today and the past 2 morning she has coughed enough that I feel her tummy start pumping and she pukes :(. Should I be calling her doc??

My 10 month old DD was diagnosed with croup on Monday and also had to have steroids. She has been MISERABLE. She is finally better today. Now her cough is more wet/productive, not the barking cough. I think the cough can linger for a long time. I ended up calling the nurse yesterday just to check in. She said to keep pushing fluids and cool, moist air. It never hurts to call and check in if you're worried.

Hang in there! I feel your pain!!
