My 2yo has had an awful cough, mostly at night, for a couple of weeks now, but seems otherwise well. She is up to date with her vaccinations. There were a couple of children at the school her older siblings go to who had whooping cough, and I was wondering if that's what she might have.
She seems fine other than this really choking sort of cough that she has a couple of times during the night. It subsides fairly quickly and she goes back to sleep.
I'm against antibiotics unless they're absolutely necessary. Do you think I should let whatever it is run it's course or take her to the doctor? As I said it doesn't seem to be overly worrying her. I've had whatever it is, too, and I did feel sick, but the cough is now going away.
