Whooping Cough Culture

Our son 3.5 and our daughter 5 months, have potentially been exposed to whooping cough. We are currently treating with pertussium 30c 2 x a day. They both are presenting just a common cold, no obvious continual coughs yet. As we are not 100% sure they have it (early days) we are considering doing a culture. Has anyone had any experience with this?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Gelsemium 30c would be my choice.

It is known to be effective as a prophylactic against any viruses.

It is most likely that it may also succeed in helping with your children's colds.

It is most effective when used in the wet dose and you can read about how to make it on:

Thank you for the recommendation on the Gelsemium. We read the water preparation 3 pellets, in 500ML of water. Do you sip the water throughout the day? or take this dose 2 x per day?
Natural Olive last decade
A dose comprises a teaspoonful which is given after the bottle is succussed (shaken hard) 3 times a day preferably an hour before food.

Ok great. Just one last question. Should the bottle be kept in the fridge or not?
Natural Olive last decade
It is not essential to keep the remedy refrigerated. I have had many reports from those that do that someone invariably drinks it up in the mistaken belief that the water is there for drinking.

In any case no harm results by drinking all the water in the bottle as it is still recognized as just one dose. In homeopathy it is the frequency that counts.
