My daughter is exhibiting all the symptoms of whooping cough. At night it is the worst, she coughs to the point of vomiting and cannot breathe for a moment. The vomiting is now happening each night after the coughs. During the day the coughs seeem to be milder and she's still eating/drinking okay.
Over the weekend she had the culture swab which was really hard to watch and a lot more invasive than I had thought before she had it done, but still waiting on the results. This is going on week 2 and this is my first experience with this illness that I have given her two doses of the anitbiotic, the first dose she vomited back up within 10-15 minutes. I called after hours care and they suggested I try giving one more dose the second day, so far today she kept the dose down. I don't like giving antibiotics at all but this illness concerns me so I did give it to her. Is there other things to do besides vitamin C to strengthen her system while taking the antibiotic?
