Last year, when people were still recovering from corona disease and the situation improved to some extent, its Omicron, Delta and sub variants made it difficult to live. As the variants kept coming, the risk of spreading the disease increased rapidly. But recently another disease has put the whole world in tension. The name of this disease is 'croup' and young people are coming under its control.Recent reports have revealed that young children who have been infected with the Omicron variant may be at significantly higher risk of croup disease. 

Symptoms include a harsh or "barky" cough and difficulty breathing. 

The condition can last 5 to 6 days.

Croup disease becomes fatal if you delay to observe  its observational symptoms & medical consultation. Due to the similar symptoms of Omicron and Croup disease, a clear understanding is required to save your children from this disease.

Let us know how Omicron and Croup can be identified. But before that we know what is croup disease?

What is Croup disease?

Croup is an upper respiratory infection that causes difficulty in breathing and causes coughing. It is caused by parainfluenza and the common cold.

Symptoms similar to common cold:

Croup is a very common disease in young children. It gets better at home in a few days. But, this disease can be risky. This disease starts with cold and flu and along with this, the problem of fever and stuffy nose can also be seen in children.

Let's discuss the difference between common & severe symptoms of Croup-Disease:

Symptoms include a harsh or "barky" cough and difficulty breathing. The condition can last 5 to 6 days.




Breathing Disorder


Rapid Breathing 

Redness in Eyes 

Urine Blockage

Swollen Lymph Nodes

Profuse salivation

Whooping Cough 

Blue Coloration of Norse

Sore Voice 

Tiredness or Restlessness 

Noise producing Breath 

Whistling sound while breathing 

Bad Breath 

Hoarseness sound while breathing 


Blue Coloration of Nails

Baby crying & agitation related problems 

Airway below the vocal cords turns narrow:

If this disease is happening after corona then it can be very serious. Timely doctor treatment becomes very important. In croup, there is swelling of the voice box and windpipe. Inflammation causes the airway below the vocal cords to become tighter, causing wheezing and difficulty breathing.

Fall in rate with age:

It is caused by an infection. This disease is more common in children between three months and five years of age. As the child grows older, this problem lessens in them. But this disease is spreading very fast in children who have had corona earlier. 

Relationship between Omicron & Croup 

Barking Cuff:

Health experts say that sore throat, runny nose, and changes in voice can be seen in both corona and croup. But the problem of 'barking cough' is more in children infected with croup. Whereas symptoms of normal cough or dry cough are seen in corona.It is also important to know that croup disease is seen more in the winter or autumn season. Whereas Corona can catch you anytime. For your information, let us tell you that a strange sound like a dog barking when coughing is called barking cough.

What to do if you get sick?

If croup disease is detected at an early stage, then it can be cured with treatment at home. In this, the patient is advised to take rest. It is said to drink plenty of water. It is advised to take the medicines given by the doctors on time.

Do not delay in seeking medical advice: 

If a child is getting this disease after having Covid, then instead of keeping him at home, he should be taken to the doctor immediately. If there is more difficulty in breathing, then immediately go to the hospital. If you ignore it, then the matter can get worse, life can also become a risk.
