Okay so DS has had a bout of croup - all of yesterday and today. He's been on the pred mix already those days, and already seeming a lot better. The bark cough is almost gone - he hasn't had a coughing fit at all for the last several hours. Just small coughs here and there. He still has a slight runny nose. Also i am keeping up his panadol doses.
The doc advised to keep him home tomorrow... and also Fri if he still seems unwell. DH is claiming DS will be find to go tomorrow since he is showing so much improvement now. I am concerned tomorrow will be too soon, but i don't have any sick days and feeling that it would be also really bad to keep him home when he was actually well enough to go.
What would you do? I don't want to make other kids sick as well. But if he seems better tomorrow with no more coughing would that mean he is well enough and no longer contagious? Croup just usually lasts the full 3 days with him but it seems he is recovering a lot quicker this time.
He is actually over active now and tearing the house apart!
