Is bronchitis going around?

The boys came home from XH's house, and DS1 was sick.  He was at school Friday but spent Thursday in bed.  DS3 (9 yo) woke me up at 5am because he was having trouble breathing & has a croupy cough.

I'm on WebMD, looking at 'symptom checker' and my initial thought of "croup" for DS3 is unlikely since that seems to hit younger kids.  Anyone know if bronchitis or anything is hitting hard right now?

(BTW - I may be calling the on-call doc later once I see how he's doing in the daytime.)




Re: Is bronchitis going around?

  • I know pnemonia is so I'm pretty sure bronch is floating around as well. Hope everyone feels better soon.
  • It could be croup - my 5 year old still gets croup.

  • DH has bronchitis, and the doctor told him it's going around. 

  • The little boy I watch has croup, and I have had a really annoying cough for forever, so it could be going around.

  • I have a nasty cold with cough and my chest felt tight a couple days ago, but I attributed it to pregnancy and everything pushing up into my lungs. I feel like I still got the "croup" cough as a kid until I was 10 or so.
