The doctor will examine your child to assess if the croup is serious or if there is any airway blockage or bacterial infection. Medications such as epinephrine or corticosteroids may be given to reduce swelling in the upper airways. Oxygen may also be given, and sometimes a child with croup will remain in the hospital for observation. As with most illnesses, rest and plenty of fluids are recommended.
