The coughing crud...is it going around?

My boys are coughing their little heads off! Is something going around, or are we the only ones?

  • My co-worker and myself had a horrible cough about a month and a half ago...it lasted about a month long...it was awful.. coughed so hard you would pee your pants and make your sides sore...at the end of the illness we both got this terrible tickle that would make you cough.......glad to say we are both over it now.

  • I am in Arizona and they said on the news the other day that whooping cough is going around and is really bad this year. They said that if your kids are coughing so hard they have a hard time catching their breathe to have them seem by a dr asap because it can be deadly. GL and I hope it's not that.

  • I had some kind of cough that lasted a good month or more, but that was earlier in the year. I'd cough and cough. It drove my husband nutz.

  • Yes, again. I had it in May and now people around here are going through it. I sure hope I don't get it again because it is exhausting.

  • Just keep an eye on them. Coughs can be caused by so many different things. You can always take them to the doctor if you are concerned.
