Most Children Get Better Without Treatment

Recognizing Trouble Signs

While most children with croup will get better within a short time, some do need urgent medical care.

The AAP recommends seeking treatment immediately if the child:
  • Makes a whistling sound that gets louder with each breath
  • Can't speak for lack of breath
  • Seems to be struggling to get a breath
  • Seems very pale or has a bluish mouth or fingernails
  • Drools or has extreme difficulty swallowing saliva
  • Keeps making the abnormal, high-pitched breathing sound, known medically as stridor, while resting
