When you should worry about croup?


There are, however, a couple of home remedies that you can try to help alleviate your child’s symptoms. Be aware, though, that most of them don’t have a lot of scientific evidence to support their use.

Breathe in Humid Air

Many healthcare providers suggest exposing your child to moist or humid air, like breathing steamy air from a hot shower or opening the windows on a cool night. But no evidence shows that moist air actually helps. (If using the shower is too awkward or difficult, try a humidifier.)

Drink Plenty of Fluids

Doctors also frequently advise patients with any form of viral infection is to push the fluids. Staying hydrated may help the body fight infection. However, research has found little evidence to support this advice and some evidence actually suggests that increasing fluid intake may actually cause harm.
