In the last week or two I’ve seen quite a few cases of croup. Watch out for high-pitched, barky, seal type of cough usually with a fever.
Put your child in the steamy bathroom or sit out on your stoop in the cool outside air. Push fluids and give Motrin™ for fever.
Child must stay home until no fever for twenty-four hours and cough calms.
