My dr just told me I have croup. Is it actually possible for an adult to get croup? How do I get rid of it?

Yes definitely - I know many adults that have had it (my stepmom currently does and has antibiotics for it).
Stay away from young bubbas for now if you can!

I thought it was viral, and not actually infectious? So you can pass on the virus that caused your croup, but not actually croup as that develops in the individual. PP are you sure your stepmum isn't taking steroids for it because ABs won't do anything.

Croup cough is a seal bark cough that is either caused by a virus or environmental
The cough itself is not contagious and antibiotics will not help it but steroids will,
Its really unusual for an adult to get croup

My son suffers from Croup and I can tell you antibiotics won't work as it is Viral. My son has steriods to help with his breathing if it is really bad. I thought the adult version of Croup is Laryngitis??? Could be wrong.
