The smaller your airway is to begin with, the smaller it will be when it is swollen from a viral croup infection. Your airway gets larger as you age. Kids under age three are the most affected. And, adults (yes, like you) are the least affected. So, a baby might have trouble catching his breath with croup and an adult might just have a hoarse voice (or “laryngitis”).
