In croup, Bromium is rarely indicated in the early stage; but when the febrile symptoms have subsided, the patient is weak, perspiring, has a hard, tight cough, which is spasmodic, with suffocative attacks and sometimes rattling of mucus in larynx; the element of spasm generally indicates the drug. It follows well after Iodine. Spasmodic croup symptoms, starting up as if choked, greater when drinking; every inspiration provokes cough.
