Best Remedy for Croup

My sisters babies had the croup last week. It’s terrible to hear the wheezing and gasping for air that little ones deal with when they’ve got the croup.

Symptoms of croup are caused by the airways being swollen and narrowed. You will be able to recognize the croup by the barking cough, raspy voice and harsh wheezing sound when breathing in.  Sometimes children breathe fast and need to sit up to breathe better.

Best Remedy for Croup

I am going to share a croup recipe which people swear by:

1 C. Cubed Ice
1 C. Rubbing Alcohol



Combine the ice, and alcohol into a bowl and cover with the cloth. Ring out and wash cloth and wrap it around the neck of your sick baby or child. You can wrap the bigger towel  around the neck to help subside the fumes. Leave on until the wash cloth is warm and repeat and the cough loosens.

Do you have any effective recipes for croup? If so please let me know what your best remedy for croup is, I’d love to hear it.


  1. […] There are a couple ways you can drink apple cider vinegar. One way is to put 1/8th cup ACV in 16 oz of water and sip it throughout the day. The other method is to gulp the mixture at once. Depends on your preference, really. Sometimes you just have to take this dosage once to stop the allergy and sometimes you need to take it up to three times a day. If taken at the onset of symptoms, allergies will usually disappear between 1 -3 hours after taking the first dose of Apple Cider Vinegar. If you’ve been experiencing allergies for a day or more, your symptoms will disappear after about 24 hours. If they don’t, make sure you continue to take water/vinegar mixture for several days! The great thing about apple cider vinegar is that it appears to repair the immune system over time. So while you may take it every day for a month or two to begin with, you can taper off it and then only take as needed. Original Quote […]
