Re: Think my 2 1/2 yr old has Croup.. what to do?
My 19 month old and 3 year old just got over croup!! The baby was put on steroids and an inhaler along with antibiotics (but that was for his pneumonia he had on top of it) .. My 3 year old was just on Tylenol and Motrin alternated and then breathing treatments as needed. The steamy shower outdoor cold trick at night helped big time!! Taking to the doctor tomorrow is fine, if they stop breathing or don't stop coughing at all then I'd say go to the ER! Good Luck Momma, croup is crap!!
