We always see a gp after any trip to emergency, we're normally told to. They also send our notes to our gp.

You can contact Asthma Australia for information and advice on 1800ASTHMA (1800278462) you can also register online to have a free Control pack sent to you that has heaps of information to help you better manage asthma symptoms and includes an emergency fridge magnet.

I think it's best to see your pead/ dr. As its a combination of things, it's more difficult. Also the number pp, sometimes it helps to get advise from a variety of places, just to be sure.
From what I know about croup a spacer will do nothing, unless your child has some sort of bronchitis/asthma as well.
Croup is all upper airways, its the voice box (larynx) that's why they give the steroid, it makes the swelling go down.
my DD used to get it about 3-6 times a year, each time the standard 3day treatment of steroids, I was assured by many Dr's that this dosage is not one to leave any side effects/ stunt growth etc.
She did grow out of it, I think they say by 7? DD's last time was before she turned 6.
(For the croup we found a few mins outside in the cold air would calm it down a little)
Hope your LO is doing well.

I haven't read all replies but my DD is very similar. She be 3 soon, last year she had:
Croup 5 times
Respiratory tract infection twice
Sinus infection once
Croup 3 times
Respiratory tract 3 times
Sinus infection twice
She's also always had glue ear that was only diagnosed recently.
I also swear she was on steroids all last winter, & last week she came down with croup for the first time this year (slightly early in the seasons for her)
Any we FINALLY have our paediatric ENT app today & hoping to get some answers. Maybe ask your GP for referral?
I don't know where you are, but we are in Newcastle NSW. The public wait list at JHH is YEARS long for a consult. I rang the private hospital, got some numbers for a few private doctors, and booked our consult last week.
We don't have private insurance so we are paying $$$ but I refuse to make DD wait years, as I'm sure you understand it's very distressing for them.
Sorry think I've just derailed your thread just wanted to let you know how we are dealing with it/give you some options.
