Just a cough or a trip to docs?

How old is she?

My DD gets like this and I have taken her to GP a couple of times and got antibiotics.
She is worse when she's teething.

GP didn't mind at all and took it all quite seriously. Well, you know, as seriously as needed. I find if you dither then it will get worse on a Friday afternoon when you can't get to doctor's!

Think I'd take her to GP just in case.
I always worry that they won't shift the cough and get chest infections. If it's so bad that she's not sleeping and retching then I think it's best to get it checked out.

Sounds like whooping cough to me

Have a look at the videos on this website www.whoopingcough.net and see if any sound similar

Hope she gets better soon whatever it is

I took 2-yr old daughter to GP after three weeks of coughing, including retching..... sounded like smokers' cough. She was diagnosed with childhood asthma, and now has inhaler. Did fear whooping cough, but she was vaccinated at the right time, so relieved its 'only' asthma.
