The BEST thing for croup
BEST thing for CROUP!! I hate CROUP. My grandma told me about this 10 years ago when my then 2 year old was suffering with nasty croup. It has been a lifesaver ever since with my boys who have all had reoccurring croup and other respiratory crap...
1 cup Ice
1 cup Rubbing Alcohol
Put washcloth, ice and alcohol into bowl and cover with hand towel for 1 minute. Ring out wash cloth, wrap around neck of child and cover with hand towel to help subside fumes. Leave on until washcloth is warm and repeat until croup cough loosens.
I would love to know if anyone has come across any other old remedies for croup and if you try my grandma's so leave a comment :)
