Watch out for the never ending cough!
Boys are at greater risk than girls
Crup syndrome, the most common cause of parainfluenza virus, is defined as a viral disease that prevents air ingress into the lung by keeping the larynx and its surroundings. Krup syndrome is mostly seen in infants. While this syndrome first manifests itself with cold symptoms, it becomes a rough cough in the form of dog barking in the coming days.
In the last stage, coughing starts to come in seizures. The syndrome becomes even more severe when a baby's cry is added to this situation. Because edema in the larynx and vocal cords causes the child to experience breathing difficulty. The crup syndrome, which progresses as an epidemic in the winter season, usually affects children between 1 and 6 years of age.
However, the most common symptom of this syndrome is the 1.5 to 2 year age range. 3-5% of children spend at least 1 time crup. Recurrent (recurrent) croup is seen in 5% of these children. Boys are also more affected than croup syndrome in girls.
