Croup

Croup is a respiratory infection involving the voice area (larynx) and windpipe (trachea). It is usually caused by a virus, including some of the same viruses that cause a cold. Croup usually occurs in younger children—about age 4 or less. It can be scary because of the sound of the “barking” cough, one of the main symptoms. Although most children recover in a few days, often there is some difficulty breathing.

Symptoms

Your child may have symptoms of a cold (runny nose, sore throat, or cough) for a few days before the typical symptoms begin.

  • A “barking” cough is the most common symptom.
  • It usually involves hoarseness.
  • A harsh sound when breathing in is common. This is called stridor. This stridor can be mild or severe and cause difficulty breathing.
  • If there is a lot of difficulty breathing, the ribs may stick out and the chest may get sucked in with each breath. This type of breathing is called retraction.
  • Retractions can also occur where the neck meets the collar bones.
  • Fever may be present.

Symptoms, especially stridor, are worse when the child is upset or crying.

Symptoms are usually worse at night and last a few days, but should be gone within a week.
