Q.

Croup

My baby now almost 7 months developed croup. Our GP gave her Orylox, Prelone, Betnesol N nasal spray and I nebulize her with Pulmecort and Duolin twice a day. How long before her dreadful cough will stop? I started all of this on Tuesday evening. She' s quite cheerful if she' s awake, it' s just the breathing and coughing when she lies down.

The typical barking/hoarse cough of croup usually last a few days. It is important that your baby is happy. She is on the correct treatment but you can stop the Betnesol nasal spray.
