Yes, zyrtec would be fine but you might also want to give him Mucinex D which will help to loosen up the congestion.
Croup is a virus and like any cold may take a few days to resolve. Continue to use a cool mist humidifier on him at night also.
Thanks what concerned me is if zyrtec is safe to be administered with croup to a 23 month old ?
So is it safe to give it to him ?
Yes, zyrtec is quite safe but is an antihistamine so not necessarily going to help his croup as much as a cough medication/expectorant like Mucinex will.
alright thanks for the response doctor. This hehelps
