croup?

Post by Kirsten on Mon 26 Aug 2013 - 10:48

Hi mommies,

My lg (7 months this week!) was playing with a little 2 year old yesterday who has just been diagnosed with croup.
What must I watch out for and should I just take her to the doc now to get meds so she doesnt get sick?

Croup is not something that you can get from someone else. Croup is basically Laryngitis, adults and children over the age of 7 get laryngitis, tots and babies get croup.

I agree with Lilly, although I know some docs say it is contagious. My daughter doesn't always get fever, but believe me, you will KNOW The Cough if it starts. It's a very, very distinctive, very scary sound!!!
