We have a dose of redipred to give him this evening but I am so scared of it happening again tonight. It was so scary.
If you have experience with this I would really appreciate hearing from you. In particular, I wonder if your kids are prone to croup, what can you do when you are on holidays, going on a plane etc where you may not be able to get quick emergency medical treatment? We are going on holidays soon, not anywhere terribly remote but also probably not somewhere where we'll get a quick response from an ambulance and I'm a bit worried. I know some people are given redipred in powder form to make up but I am not sure that would have helped us last night as it was so sudden and severe.
My older son had croup a few times but it was never this bad and responded to steam etc. Also we had some warning with him, some coughing etc.
Thanks in advance.
