When to seek medical advice

Most cases of croup aren't life-threatening, and you can treat them at home without medication. However, if your child develops a severe case of croup, seek immediate medical attention.

With severe croup, your child may make noisy, high-pitched breathing sounds when inhaling (stridor). Because cases with stridor can worsen and close off the airway, seek medical treatment if your child develops stridor or the following signs and symptoms:

  • Drooling or difficulty swallowing

  • Agitation or extreme irritability

  • Increased difficulty breathing

  • Blue or dusky colored skin around the nose, mouth or fingernails

  • Tugging in of the skin between the ribs while breathing in (retractions)

Croup shouldn't cause infants or children to turn blue or develop a dusky hue to their lips and mouths. If this happens, don't wait until morning to see your doctor. Seek medical attention right away.

Signs and symptoms of croup are often worse at night. If your child is still having difficulty with croup during the day, check with your child's doctor. It might be time to start medical treatment or have your child undergo further evaluation.

Complications

The biggest concern with croup is whether severe breathing difficulty will develop. Some infants and children with severe croup may need to be admitted to an intensive care unit for observation and breathing treatments. Extremely severe croup can result in life-threatening swelling of the airway.

In rare cases, ear infection and pneumonia are complications of croup that may develop. The virus that causes croup may spread to the lungs or upward to the nose and to the ears.
