I am pretty sure my kids have contracted pertussis. They have both been to doc and they did not say that is what they had though.
My son is 11 and has had a cough since July 1 he is very slowly get better but still coughs. He never had the whoop sound. He did vomit a few times due to coughing overnight that kept him up.
My 4 year old daughter started the whoop coughing episodes about 5 days ago. I watched a video of a child coughing with pertussis and that is exactly what my daughter sounds like.
So anyone have any suggestions for getting through this?
Please don't flame me for not vaxxing. I hold strong in my decision and do not regret it.
