Texa is an antihistamine medicine and is not used to treat croup, so do not give this to your baby. It is also certainly no substitute for Aspelone.You should not give an antibiotic either as croup is almost always caused by a virus infection.Virus infections are not treated by antibiotics. You should complete the Aspelone course.The dose is low and this is the safest short acting cortisone that can be used to treat croup.A short 5 day course will not cause side effects.
It will certainly help to treat any future croup episodes with nebulised Pulmicort.
