Good evening,
My son has Staphylococcus Aureus and has just got a bad bout of CROUP this evening after having a cough for many weeks. It doesn't seem to be getting better with steam although he can still breathe easily at this stage. Due to the staphylococcus aureus, should i take extra precaution and call 111 ?
