What is Croup?

Croup is a respiratory condition that is usually triggered by an acute infection of the upper airway.

The infection leads to swelling inside the throat around the vocal cords and increased production of phlegm, which disrupts normal breathing and causes symptoms like “barking” cough, stridor and hoarseness.

Croup is common in infants and children (between 3 months and 5 years old) but it can happen at any age and can have a variety of causes.
