Your son has a very common condition called 'spasmodic croup'. This type of croup occurs without any sign of infection being present. Episodes of croup can be quite frequent but most children outgrow the tendency to develop spamodic croup by the age of 5 years. The best treatment is to use a nebuliser with Pulmicort twice daily for a day or two when he develops the croup episodes. You will need a prescription for the Pulmicort so speak to your doctor. The medicines you mention here should not be used to treat spasmodic croup as they have no benefit.
