How To Cure Croup Homeopathically

croup.jpgCroup generally occurs in children aged 3 months to 6 years. However, croup over the age of 3 years is uncommon because the windpipe is larger, therefore any swelling is less likely to get in the way of breathing. Most children have only one episode of croup, but a few children have multiple episodes. Croup can occur at any time of year, although most outbreaks are during the winter months.

It is also called laryngotracheobronchitis since it affects the larynx, trachea, and bronchi. This infection results in inflammation, increased mucus production, and swelling of the upper airways. Although croup usually resolves on its own, between 5%-10% of children with croup will require admission to the hospital.

Homeopathic medicines prescribed according to clinical presentation of the patient are very effective for relieving complaints during Chikungunya.
