Dr Bob - 

 

My 7 yr old has been exposed to pertussis at school by a child in an older grade.  We have a 13 month old at home.  Would you give abx to prevent?

 

Thank you!

Hmmm.  I think I need to defer this question to your doctor.  BUT I could say that at least at the very first sign of any cold symptoms in either child, begin treatment
