Re: !!!PLEASE HELP BABY HAS CROUP!!!

Don't be afraid of medications to help an acute situation I hope he feels better soon! My ds had to be hospitalized with RSV when he was 4 months old, and I worried about taking him to the ped and being a worrywart, but I learned that it is better to be safe than sorry.

And maybe elevate them when their sleeping it helps.
my ds gets croup about 5 times a year during cold/flu season we have the steroids at home for the nebulizer. We made so many trips to childrens the doc finally prescribed them for home. Def take the steroid breathing treatments it helps so much

Get the steroids! Croup is brutal on them. And you have no idea if your kid may have asthma, which could make it much much worse. My son had/has Croup all the time, he just went on daily steroid because that's way better for them than the constant stain on their lungs. We also do the nebulizer treatments.

And these steroids are NOT the same as the dangerous ones that athletes get caught with. Something completely different.
