My 3 year old may have pertussis but we are unsure yet. My pediatrician is treating her with zithromax right now and is saying that she will test her for it if she doesn't improve in 48 hours. I also have a 12 month old son and both my children are not vaccinated due to a family history of a fatal reaction to the dtap vaccine (in their paternal aunt). Anyway, I am wondering if there are any homeopathic and/or holistic remedies that I can try to reduce the severity of the illness if it is in fact pertussis and reduce the chance of my son getting it at all. Thanks so much for your help!
