It is possible that DH and DD may have whooping cough. They are being tested tomorrow with results not due until Monday.
My question is : DS and I do not have any symptoms ( DS has had all his immunizations up to and including 18 month shots) but I am worried - could we be carrying it and passing it on? DS has been to daycare in the last few weeks when I imagine the infection was at its worst in DH and DD (if they have it).
I know if they DO have it, we have to inform everybody (I believe the Health Dept gets involved also) but I don't know whether to send DS out of the house now ie to daycare on Monday or not? I don't want him exposed to all the germs but of course I don't want him PASSING it to anyone else either!!
I can't find any info on the net about being a "Carrier". Does anyone have any idea?
