    I don't really want to keep this going but what the?? How do you know who he caught it from?

    It's also a myth that you suffer less with it if you are vaccinated.

    OP, when do you get the results? There is so much literature stating that no medication can really reduce the symptoms if it is whooping cough (hopefully it isn't!) It is really worth looking into the vitamin C therapy, it worked wonders with my 5 kids, it was amazing.

    My midwifes two vaccinated kids caught it. Still very sick but no where near as bad as it could've been ! It did the rounds at school.

    Yay! It's not whooping cough!

    Dr said its a very similar virus and she gets better soon.

    Yeah, I'm looking into the vitamin c. We do Inner Health every winter or at the first sign of colds etc for the girls and I as we all usually get pretty sick. So, yeah the vitamin c sounds good. I going to talk to our pharmacist tomorrow. (Don't want to take DD2 out and DH isn't the best one to do things like that lol)

    And you know this how??

    People who are vaxxed can catch it and pass it on so there is really no way of knowing where her child caught it from.

    If her coughing is bad still, try ricodeine as a cough syrup. It's codeine based and works really well. Just keep up the fluids and possibly increase juice consumption to counteract any constipation.

    I have an immuno sensitivity to whooping cough and despite various immunizations I still get it every time a bout runs through my community. I can vouch that ethrimycin works great...and worse case scenario, the slighty better roxithromycin will kick it...it's just not as tummy friendly!

    That is good news, when we have a persistent cough I go for the garlic, vitamin c and horseradish tablets or Olive leaf extract.

    Exactly! And you never know when you catch it off someone because it's contagious even before you start coughing.

    cakeish- Yeah, the Dr said the erythromycin should help anyway.

    Going to the chemist tomorrow afternoon when DH can stay with the girls. I think the cough has eased slightly. Still really bad but more like every 1-2mins rather than as soon as every 10 seconds.
