When you should worry about croup?


There are only two symptoms of croup:

  • Barking cough
  • Stridor

Stridor is a high-pitched sound that goes with breathing. It comes from swelling in the upper airway near the vocal cords. In severe cases with very pronounced stridor (which is very rare), the patient can exhibit shortness of breath.
