2yr Old With Whooping Cough

My daughter is almost 3 and has what sounds like whopping cough. I looked up a sound bite online for what whooping couch sounds like, it certainly sounds like her. She's only had one "episode"  this morning. Yesterday it was just a normal cough. She's been on a high amount of Vit. C for 3 days, and I will continue to keep her on it. Is there anything else I can do to help her? Anything else I should be giving her?

I also have a 15 month old and I'm scared she's going to catch it. She's also on vit. C, but what else should I be giving her?

At what point should I take her to a hospital?

Do you have a homeopath on board?  My homeopath said she would be able to treat it if I ever needed to (in response to my fears around not vax'ing) for my little one.

No, unfortunately I can't afford one. Wish I could. Actually, right now, we are without any insurance at all. Our new insurance doesnt kick in until Feb 1..... figures she'd get sick now.

She's acting normal, but man, what she starts coughing she sounds awful.

 Whooping Cough treatment using Garlic

Garlic is one of the most effective remedies for whooping cough. The syrup of garlic should be given in doses of five drops to a teaspoon, two or three times a day, for treating this condition. It should be given more often if the coughing spells are frequent and violent.

 Whooping Cough treatment using Ginger

Ginger is another effective remedy for whooping cough. A teaspoon of fresh ginger juice, mixed with a cup of fenugreek decoction and honey to taste, is an excellent diaphoretic. The fenugreek decoction can be made by boiling one teaspoon of seeds in 250 ml of water till it is reduced to half.

Whooping Cough treatment using Radish Syrup prepared by mixing a teaspoon of fresh radish juice with an equal quantity of honey and a little rock salt, is beneficial in the treatment of this disease. It should be given thrice daily.

Whooping Cough treatment using Almond Oil

Almond oil is valuable in whooping cough. Five drops of almond oil should be mixed with ten drops each of fresh white onion juice and ginger juice, and taken thrice daily for a fortnight. It will provide relief.

Whooping Cough treatment using Calamus

The herb calamus is another valuable remedy for whooping cough. A pinch of the powder of the roasted herb should be given with a teaspoon of honey. Being antispasmodic, it prevents severe bouts of coughing. For smaller children, the dose must be proportionately smaller.
