My 4 1/2 year old just had another quick bout with the croup. She had just one night with the barking cough. She didn't have a fever or any aches or pains. She had it last January too, but her upper respiratory infection was very bad at the time. I think she had it one time when she was 2 also. She had her first round of it when she was about 7 months old. Therefore, she seems to have had the croup a total of 4 times in her young life.
All the medical information I have read about it so far says that usually babies and toddlers get it only once. Therefore, I am wondering if she is likely to end up with asthma. One website said they can get it up to 6 years old. She seems to not have any issues with breathing when she is active at all. I wonder if she has an underlying condition which causes her to be more susceptible to the croup?
