My 9 year old is just recovering from a bad bout of croup, which my 5 year old has just picked up and is suffering from at the minute. My 9 yo has always been prone to croup (as I was, even hospitalized with it as a baby), but I thought he would have grown out of it by now. But this time seems to have been just as bad as ever. (Not needing hospitalization but a few bad barky cough for several days and nights, plus fever. He has had it for a week and is still exhausted from it)
Does anyone else have experience of an older child still getting group? At what age did they grow out of it?
