DD is 8 months and has had a cough and cold for a couple of weeks now. I took her to the doctor who said her throat and chest were fine and I should give her lots of fluid, rest etc.
This evening, she has occasionally made a whooping sound when she coughs. The cough is worse when she is asleep and the whopping isn't every time she coughs. I've listened to some audio files online and it does sound like whooping cough.
I'm just wondering whether to take her to a&e or wait and see a GP first thing?
Thank you. I think I'll wait until the morning. I was vaccinated when I was pregnant and DD's vaccinations are up to date. I would have thought that was adequate protection. Really hope it's not whooping cough.
I had the jab when pregnant and my ds got whooping cough at 8wks so it is possible. Luckily for us a mild case (but still very scary) and the cough can last for quite a long time and it still reappears when he has a very heavy cold.
