Can children get croup more than once?

Croup is most common in children under five years of age, when their small, soft windpipes are more likely to be affected by swelling. As children grow, their windpipes become larger and stronger, allowing improved infection management. However, croup does sometimes occur in children up to the age of 15. It may also come back several times in some children who are prone to it.
