    Default Not sure what to do. Advice

    SO on Thurday last week, i took DD to the doctors for a cough. he suspected whooping cough and gave her a course of antibiotics and steriods. DD has finished the medications and is almost not coughing at all. Occasionally she will but usually only if she is running around too much or over excited.

    The thing is, i havent got the results back yet and we have family gatherings for easter over the weekend. Plus id really like to catch up with some friends. If it was whooping cough it was very mild.

    Now i have been really careful not allowing her around other kids...especially babies since thursday and id really like to let her have some social interaction.

    Would you go over easter? Would you orgainse a playdate yet??

    Honestly i dont no that much about whopping cough, except its very dangerous for babies.

    I think being over a week on antibiotics/ steroids and not getting worse she should be fine. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit newborn babies or people with a weak immune system for another week or so. Coughs of any sort always hang around a few weeks.

    How come you still haven't got results yet?

    You defiantly need to get the results of the Whooping Cough test.

    If that turns out negative then go for it.

    You would think if she has taken the treatment then she is no longer infectious - has she finished the course?
