General Whooping Cough / Pertussis Information
Whooping cough, also called pertussis, is a bacterial infection of the respiratory tract. The bacteria invade the lining of the respiratory tract and airways, resulting in increased mucus production. Whooping cough is extremely contagious. A vaccine is available to prevent whooping cough. The condition affects children, mostly those who are too young to have been vaccinated, but adults can also contract whooping cough, especially those whose immunities have been compromised.

Possible Symptoms of Whooping Cough / Pertussis
The first symptoms of whooping cough is cold-like symptoms that last about two weeks. After the cold symptoms fade, a chronic cough develops that is often impossible to control. Coughing episodes are violent and can lead to breathing difficulties. These coughing episodes can be frightening, especially in babies.

Check with the child’s healthcare provider before administering any herb or supplement.
