Does this sound like croup?



Delilah coughs loud and really bad at night.
It makes it hard for her to breathe when she coughs alot at night.
During the day, shes fine and coughs loud but not as much.



TIA

Could be or it could be pneumonia. I would take her in for a chest x-ray.

Take her in to get checked. It's likely just a cold with the mucus settling when she relaxes. Try using a humidifier in her room too.

croup sounds like a dog bark and yes it is worse at night my son had it. My 5 month old has double ear infections and she would scream all night long till the meds helped.

Everything pools in her chest when she lays down at night. If you put something under her say a pillow or one if those mesh bathtub Betty things, you wouldn't find she coughs as much. She needs to be on an incline.

then most likely it is croup try steam from the shower before she goes to bed, here they just them the steroid and send them on there way.

croup is viral. They wouldn't give antibiotics just for that. There would have to be some sort of bacterial infection on top of croup. A steamy room, or cool air if it's cold by you will help. If it's super bad they can give you steroids for it that will help (kid sized, not athlete sized)
