Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. Croup is an inflammation around the vocal cords which is usually followed by coughing. It is a viral condition and can be contagious and you should have a follow up with your physician immediately. Here is some more information http://www.empowher.com/search/google?cx=007544384767083790728%3A2otat3sg2a8&cof=FORID%3A9&query=croup&op=GO&form_build_id=form-cb339e105d6e4751055d390713f5629a&form_token=7cd28044c8c35efad14dde223cac1195&form_id=google_cse_searchbox_form.

I hope this helps.
