Hi Ms.Poulton, its unfortunate your query remains unanswered for so long. I hope you got your child checked and sorted out. As you said GP ,I believe you live in the UK. Given your little boy's history of being prem with CLD, you should have a low threshold to take him into your GP's or into the A&E particularly for any breathing type problems including croup. I will be happy to take any further queries in relation to your child. Take Care.
