New Here-Help w/ 2.5 yr old whooping cough

Hello, my 5 month old was diagnosed with Whooping cough after ten days of coughing. She never had a runny nose nor a fever. However the doctor never heard her cough nor did a swab. She immed. put her on Antibotics and Albuetrol. needless to say, I am not sure if she had it. My main question is my 2.5 yr old has coughed here and there. No runny nose or fever yet. maybe I am barking up the wrong tree. She is not immunized and wondered if you had any thing I can give her in the form of vitamins to halt this, that is if she even has this. Better safe than sorry. I have Belladona. How much Vit c's?? Thanks in advance!

Worried mom!!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
is she taking the antibiotics? is she coughing? you need to describe the cough for us to help choose a remedy.
If you give vitamin C then follow the guidelines on the packaging for infants, or preferably give juice rich in vitamin c. It is not advisable to give huge doses of vitamins to a young infant. is she breastfeeding or formula?

thanks for your reply!! Yes she is currently my 5 month old is taking Antibotics(regretfuly!). Yes, her cough is most exhausting only when she gets up in the morning. Never in the middle of the night. And there's no Whooping sound. It's wetter now and less exhausting. At first, it was making her gag and she would get all red. She is EBF and has not started eating solids yet. But, my main concern is with my 2.5 yr old. Anything for her, as she has coughed here and there. No fever, or runny nose yet. I wanted to stop it now, before it's too late!! Thanks so much!

Do you have a history of TB in your family.If yes and your child has a confirmed whooping cough you may give her Drosera 30 just one dose and then wait for a week.

to help protect your 2.5 yr old give the vitamin C and make sure the diet is very good, including a good source of Vitamin A in the diet or with a suitable supplement. Garlic is also good in the food (not too much just normal amounts) - raw garlic is meant to have the best properties to ward off ills, but I have no idea on the amount of raw garlic for a child. For an adult 1-2 raw cloves daily,but for a child I don't know, so I leave this for others to advise you on or for you to investigate further from a good book/nutritionist.

As Drosera is such a good whooping cough remedy then give one dose (only one dose) now to your 2.5 year old and this will also help.

As rajivprasad said above a dose of this for your 5 month old - if this doesn't help then come back to us for more help.
best wishes, erika
