But i still sent DH out to buy a eauky bear vaporizer tonight as I am fed up. So i gave DS a roasty shower and steamed up the bathroom, then sent him to bed with the vaporizer going and his cough has stopped in it's tracks!
Why do they say vaporizers don't work? They bl00dy well do!
Geeze i wish i got this sooner. I listened to my doc who said not to use a vaporizer... but i have decided to give it a go for once and it's working amazingly.
Does it work for other people here too? It can't be a coincidence. He was having coughing fits until we cranked it up!

I was told vaporizers don't work for croup!

Yes have always worked for my DD who's an ex premmie and frequently gets croup and has chronic lung disease!

It doesnt work for my sons, it actually makes it way worse for them.
Glad you gave it a go and found it worked though. I find taking my boys out into the cold air before putting them to bed helps open up their airways and helps them get some sleep.

I am glad the vaporizer helped! Your Dr is giving out the most up to date recommendations, which is good! I know alot of people who swear by vaporizers though. I don't find they really help with croup for my kids unfortunately.

DS gets croup quite often and i wouldnt be without my vapouriser.
A quick tip that i love is, i put a glob of vicks in the hole where the steam comes out. It fills the room with that lovely vicks vapours...smells great and helps the lungs too!

It doesn't work here. Cold air helps.
The Royal Childrens Hospital doesn't recommend vaporisers and steam.
