To help loosen phlegm and congestion during an attack, fill a bathroom with steam by turning on the hot shower and have the child breathe in the bathroom until the attack is gone.

This remedy was suggested by a pediatric nurse for my child and it worked!

If it worked, it was most likely athsma or congestion. I've heard sudden cold air can help crop.

when my children had croup back in the early 70s my doctor always told me to put them in a hot steamy bathroom

CROUP IS NOT A PHLEM PROBLEM IT IS A RESTRICTED AIRWAY CAUSED BY INFLAMATION OF THE THROAT JSUT BELOW THE LARYNX LEMON AND HONEY MIGHT REMEDY OTHER PROBLEMS BUT NOT TRUE CROUP

THIS IS NOT A GOOD IDEA FOR CROUP....IT IS INFLAMATION...THEREFORE TO ADD HEAT TO THE SITUATION ONLY MAKES IT MORE INFLAMMED....COLD, DRY AIR IS BEST....DRESS EM WARM AND GO OUTSIDE, OR EVEN WRAP EM UP AND SIT EM IN FRONT OF THE FREEZER...WHEN MY DAUGHTER WAS HOSPITALIZED WITH A SEVERE CASE OF CROUP, I WAS TOLD BY ALL THE DOCTORS...NEVER USE THE STEAMY BATHROOM TRICK, SO BE CAREFUL!!

My son has had it twice now in 3 months. We did a hot steamy bathroom for 15 minutes and then immediately went outside for 10 to 15 min. Came in and opened window in bedroom and have a cool mist humidifier. It def helps the coughing a ton!!!!!!! Good luck
