We have decided that even though whooping cough is going around we are going to stick with our guns and are NOT going to vaccinate for it. Our girls are healthy and even if they get it, it shouldn't be life threatening. However, my youngest has had a nasty cough for a few weeks and it got me worried. I'm just wondering, how would you treat whooping cough in children if they had it? Would a DRs visit/meds be required?
