How Long Does Fatigue Associated With Croup Last
Cough 3X weeks with ABX x 10 days, albuterol and qvar. Fatigued and cranky. See ped ASAP? Or other dr? Not croup or whooping. Not much wheezing.
See primary: None of this sounds good. The patient, who seems to be a 5 year old male with asthma and CP, is obviously still fairly ill or under the weather. After 10 days antibiotics and appropriate asthma treatment, I'd expect the cough to be much better and the child to be perking up, not fatigued. See his doc. He likely needs a chest X-ray and a thorough exam to rule out refractory pneumonia or worse. ...Read more

How long is croup contagious? My son drank out nieces cup who had it last wk. Her fever is gone and she's back at school. Still has a cough. Worry?
Unlikely...: Though one may contract a virus by touching a contaminated surface and then touching the eyes, nose or mouth, the timing of your niece's illness makes it unlikely. Croup is usually caused by a virus infection, most often a parainfluenza virus. After the third day of symptoms, a patient will begin to clinically improve. The cough may in itself represent a post-viral cough that may persist for weeks. ...Read more
