Kids and Croup

3 Apr

Okay my oldest daughter is 8 and has never had croup. My youngest one I thought had a cold. We went in for a re-check on her URI and she was wheezing which was news to me. She said it was allergies most likely and to watch her. Last night she started a barking cough. It scared me. She had a 102.2 temperature. We went to the doctor and she was diagnosed with croup and possibly a sinus infection we are taking a wait and see approach on that. She gave me a prescription for a steroid because it can get serious at night and she could end up in the ER. This freaked me out just a bit. She is doing a little better but she is having major melt downs I will be so happy when she is 100%.
