We had to take LO to immediate care about a week and a half ago. By the sound of his cough, they instantly knew it was croup, but he'd already had a chest x-ray and they also gave him an air treatment with an air tank. He did great with that, not even needing the mask because he was sucking on the end and getting in all the air (: Then they gave him a medicine to take once for 3 days. It helped a ton.
But he's still sick. He has a cough but not a croup cough. And he has a pretty runny snotty nose. Also, now MY throat has been killing me and I have a bad cough and runny snotty nose too.
Can croup progress into a cold, or could it have faded away and then he caught a cold right after? Also my cold is making me think it's NOT just a cold but I have no idea what else it could be..
