hi my son has croup and i was just wandering what i can do for him. he has spent a night in the hospital when he was really bad with it but they only gave him some steroid to help the inflamation go down and he seemed to get better was not wheezing as much bu8t then after a day at home with no medication he has started to get worse again. the doctors say there is not much that can be done with croup and you just have to let it run it course and heal on its own. but at night time the wheezing is so bad that he is now having to sleep in his pushchair in our bedroom so that he is slighlty sat up but that still doesn't seem to help much. any ideas on what i can do just to help him?
