Croup in adults

how long does a croup last in adults? Ive been ill for four weeks now and i can't get rid of this! Started in my voice box, lost my voice and felt miserable. Now im very congested. Ears are plugged and cough is so bad that my stomach arms and chest hurt.My doctor has givin me ever antibiotic made and none is working! The only thing that helped was the steroid shot! It helped my throat open back up so I could breathe! PLEASE HELP

Re: Croup in adults

Antibiotics will not work because croup is viral. You should go to the hospital and get a nebuliser (think thats how you spell it). The steriods don't work for me but is always the first option, but the nebuliser has me feeling better in about 1 hour. The cough disappears almost immediatly and then the other symptoms probably take about 5-10 days to go away completely!

Hope this helps
