My 2 yo got her brother's cold a couple days ago, but she had a 102.5 fever and it went to her chest. He never had those things, so now I'm wondering if it's the same thing.
Anyway, when she cries and takes a breath in, it sounds like a hoarse dog bark (sort of) and her cough sounds bizarre, like choking, The few times she did it freaked me out, but she's not coughing very much at all. Her voice is also hoarse in some tones.
Anyway, I have a newborn and if this is whooping cough, I'd sure like to know sooner than later. If it is, can it be treated before it gets really bad?
