Le virus cause le gonflement des voies respiratoires supérieures, y compris le larynx (partie supérieure des voies respiratoires reliant la gorge et la trachée) et la <a href="https://pie.med.utoronto.ca/htbw/module.html?module=lung-child">trachée</a> (partie des voies respiratoires reliant le larynx et les poumons).</p><p>Cette inflammation peut provoquer des changements dans la voix des enfants et entraver leur respiration, surtout chez les bébés et les jeunes enfants étant donné que leurs voies respiratoires supérieures sont petites.</p> <figure> <span class="asset-image-title">Diphtérie laryngienne</span> <img src="https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/Croup_MED_ILL_FR.jpg" alt="" /> <figcaption class="asset-image-caption">Le croup est une infection qui affecte les cordes vocales (larynx) et la trachée (conduit aérifère). Ceci entraîne une inflammation des cordes vocales et le rétrécissement des voies respiratoires.</figcaption> </figure> <h2>À r​etenir</h2> <ul> <li>La diphtérie laryngienne est une maladie infantile courante causée par une infection virale.</li> <li>Chez la plupart des enfants, la diphtérie laryngienne est une maladie bénigne qui peut se soigner à domicile. Aucun médicament ne permettra d’éliminer le virus plus rapidement, mais il existe des moyens de soulager votre enfant.</li> <li>Si la diphtérie laryngienne a des effets graves sur votre enfant, consultez un médecin.</li> </ul><h2>Symptômes de la diphtérie laryngienne</h2> <ul> <li>toux rauque ressemblant à un aboiement,</li> <li>respiration bruyante (stridor),</li> <li>difficulté à respirer,</li> <li>voix enrouée,</li> <li>mal de gorge léger,</li> <li>écoulement ou <a href="/Article?contentid=778&language=French">congestion nasal</a>,</li> <li><a href="/Article?contentid=30&language=French">fièvre</a>.</li> </ul> <p>Le stridor est un bruit aigu qui se produit à l’inspiration lorsque les voies respiratoires sont rétrécies. Dans les cas légers de diphtérie laryngienne, le stridor peut ne se manifester que lorsque votre enfant pleure ou tousse. Toutefois, si l’infection s’aggrave, votre enfant pourrait produire ce bruit lorsqu’il est calme ou qu’il dort et avoir du mal à respirer.</p> <h3>La diphtérie laryngienne dur​​e généralement 1 semaine environ</h3> <p>​En règle générale, la durée de vie des virus à l’origine de la diphtérie laryngienne est d’une semaine environ. La toux aboyante et la respiration bruyante sont habituellement plus marquées au cours des deux ou trois premiers jours et empirent souvent pendant la nuit.</p> <h2>Que peuvent f​aire les médecins contre la diphtérie laryngienne?</h2> <h3>Médicament à base de stéroïdes</h3> <p>Pour réduire l’enflure des voies respiratoires, votre médecin peut prescrire un corticostéroïde, appelé <a href="/Article?contentid=221&language=French">dexaméthasone</a>, à prendre oralement. Ce médicament agit pleinement en quelques heures, et son effet dure de 24 à 36 heures. Seules une ou deux doses sont généralement requises.</p> <h3>Épinéphrine</h3> <p>Si votre enfant a beaucoup de mal à respirer, on pourra lui administrer un médicament appelé épinéphrine à l’aide d’un masque qui le vaporise dans les voies respiratoires. Ce médicament y réduira l’enflure très rapidement. L’effet de l’épinéphrine dure environ 4 heures. Au bout de cette période, les voies respiratoires peuvent enfler de nouveau et les difficultés respiratoires peuvent recommencer. Si l’épinéphrine est utilisée, le médecin traitant souhaitera que votre enfant reste au service des urgences pour une période de 4 à 6 heures pour s’assurer que ses symptômes diminuent d’intensité.</p> <h3>La diphtérie laryngienn​e peut se propager facilement</h3> <p>Les virus de la diphtérie laryngienne sont contagieux (se transmettent facilement d’une personne à l’autre), surtout les premiers jours de la maladie. Gardez alors votre enfant à la maison. Celui ci ne doit pas aller au service de garde ou à l’école tant que la fièvre et la toux aboyante persistent. Dans la mesure du possible, évitez que votre enfant vienne en contact avec des bébés de moins de 2 mois.</p> <p>Les adultes peuvent être infectés par le virus à l’origine de la diphtérie laryngienne de leur enfant. Cependant, chez les adultes et les enfants plus âgés, dont les voies respiratoires sont plus grandes, les symptômes sont généralement légers et peuvent davantage ressembler à ceux d’un rhume.</p><h2>Quand consult​er un médecin</h2> <h3>Appelez le médecin de vot​re enfant dans les situations suivantes :</h3> <ul> <li>la fièvre dure plus de trois jours,</li> <li>la toux persiste plus d’une semaine,</li> <li>la respiration est bruyante,</li> <li>votre enfant se plaint d’un mal d’oreille,</li> <li>l’état de votre enfant soulève d’autres questions ou préoccupations.</li> </ul> <h3>Rendez-vous au service d’urgence le plus proche ou composez immédiatement le 911 si votre enfant :</h3> <ul> <li>continue d’émettre des stridors au bout de 15 minutes d’exposition à une brume froide,</li> <li>a des épisodes répétés de stridors ou a du mal à respirer,</li> <li>présente un enfoncement de la poitrine ou de l’estomac lorsqu’il inspire,</li> <li>semble avoir les lèvres bleutées ou violacées,</li> <li>se met à baver ou à cracher, avale difficilement ou refuse de boire,</li> <li>éprouve des douleurs ou des raideurs au cou,</li> <li>semble léthargique (très endormi) ou irritable (de très mauvaise humeur),</li> <li>cesse de boire ou d’uriner.</li> </ul>

Usually only one or two doses are needed.</p> <h3>Epinephrine</h3> <p>If your child is having severe problems breathing, your child may be given a medicine called epinephrine with a mask that sprays the medicine into your child's airways. This medicine will reduce the swelling in your child's airways very quickly. The effect lasts for about four hours. After four hours, the swelling may come back and your child may have problems breathing again. If epinephrine is needed, the doctor will want your child to stay in the Emergency Department for four to six hours or the doctor may keep your child in the hospital until their symptoms improve.</p> <h3>Croup can spread easily</h3> <p>The viruses that cause croup are contagious (spread easily from one person to another), especially during the first few days. Keep your child home from daycare or school until the fever is gone and the barky cough is going away. Keep your child away from young babies (under two months old) as much as you can.</p> <p>Adults can become infected with the same virus that caused their child's croup. However, adults and older children have larger airways, and the illness is usually mild and can seem more like a cold.</p><h2>When to see a doctor</h2> <h3>Call your child's doctor if:</h3> <ul> <li>the fever lasts more than three days</li> <li>the cough lasts more than one week</li> <li>your child is having noisy breathing</li> <li>your child complains of an earache</li> <li>you have other concerns or questions</li> </ul> <h3>Take your child to the nearest Emergency Department or call 911 if:</h3> <ul> <li>the cool mist does not clear up the stridor in 15 minutes</li> <li>your child has repeated episodes of stridor or trouble breathing</li> <li>your child's chest or stomach is pulling in while breathing</li> <li>your child's lips look blue or purple</li> <li>your child starts drooling or spitting, has difficulty swallowing or refuses to drink</li> <li>your child has neck pain or neck stiffness</li> <li>your child seems lethargic (very sleepy) or irritable (very cranky)</li> <li>your child stops drinking or urinating</li> </ul>

However, adults and older children have larger airways, and the illness is usually mild and can seem more like a cold.</p><h2>Taking care of your child at home</h2> <p>For most children, croup is a mild illness that can be managed at home. Here are some ways to help your child feel better:</p> <h3>Cool mist</h3> <p>Cool, humid air may help reduce the swelling in the airways that is causing the noisy or difficult breathing. Placing your child near a cool mist vaporizer is ideal. If you do not have a cool mist vaporizer, even a simple humidifier in your child's bedroom may be helpful. During the winter, you can open your child's bedroom window to let in some cool air, or take your child outside for a short time to breathe in the cool night air.</p> <h3>Steamy bathroom</h3> <p>You can try running a hot shower with the bathroom door closed, so that the bathroom fills with steam. Sit with your child in the steam-filled bathroom for at least 10 minutes.</p> <h3>Fever and pain medicines</h3> <p>You can treat fever or sore throat with <a href="/Article?contentid=62&language=English">acetaminophen</a> or <a href="/Article?contentid=153&language=English">ibuprofen</a>. DO NOT give your child <a href="/Article?contentid=77&language=English">acetylsalicylic acid (ASA)</a>.</p> <h3>Helping your child's cough</h3> <p>Cough is a symptom of croup. There is nothing you can do to make the cough go away faster. The cough will get better as the virus runs its course.</p> <p>However, the viruses that cause croup can also trigger wheezing in children with asthma and can sometimes cause a chest infection. Take your child to the doctor if your child's cough seems severe, or if your child is having shortness of breath or is working hard to breathe.</p> <p>Over-the-counter and prescription cold medicines are of no help for children and do not make the illness go away faster. Most cold and flu medicines are safe, but they can cause unwanted side effects, such as drowsiness, dizziness, trouble falling asleep or rapid heart rate. They can also cause rare serious side effects. Talk to your doctor before giving cold medicines to a young child, especially if your child is taking other medicines or has health problems. Never give your child cough and cold medicines if they are under six years of age.</p> <p>Children with croup can suddenly start to have trouble breathing, and this can happen more than once. While your child has croup, you may wish to sleep in the same room. This will let you know about any problems during the night.</p><h2>When to see a doctor</h2> <h3>Call your child's doctor if:</h3> <ul> <li>the fever lasts more than three days</li> <li>the cough lasts more than one week</li> <li>your child is having noisy breathing</li> <li>your child complains of an earache</li> <li>you have other concerns or questions</li> </ul> <h3>Take your child to the nearest Emergency Department or call 911 if:</h3> <ul> <li>the cool mist does not clear up the stridor in 15 minutes</li> <li>your child has repeated episodes of stridor or trouble breathing</li> <li>your child's chest or stomach is pulling in while breathing</li> <li>your child's lips look blue or purple</li> <li>your child starts drooling or spitting, has difficulty swallowing or refuses to drink</li> <li>your child has neck pain or neck stiffness</li> <li>your child seems lethargic (very sleepy) or irritable (very cranky)</li> <li>your child stops drinking or urinating</li> </ul> crouphttps://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/Croup_MED_ILL_EN.jpg
