Recovering from croup

HI Doc, hope you are well.
Last week I queried croup with you. Baby is 11 months.
I completed the course of aspelone, and pulmicort, and have been using the humidifier at night. I also gave him some bisolvin to break down the mucous.
I have now stopped all medication. Baby is doing so much better, eating and playing as normal and sleeping well at night.
However I find he still sounds a bit chesty in the morning. I am afraid of him getting bronchitis. He is not coughing, and I have not used the ventolin in the last week. What can I do to get rid of the chestyness, would it help to nebulise with saline and duolin and what combination?
Thanking you in advance.

Your baby seems to be a lot better now.He has been on a lot of medicine lately. As he is eating and playing normally he must be well on the way to making a full recovery.You can give him Bisolvon at night before he goes to sleep, but otherwise let his chest clear up by itself.
