Whooping Cough

Whooping cough is an infectious disease of the respiratory mucous membrane. It is characterized by recurrent spasms of coughing that lead to loud and convulsive respiration (known as the “whoop”). Symptoms of whooping cough include a mild cough, low-grade fever, a runny nose that progresses to thick nasal discharge, and forceful coughing spells. Treatment includes antibiotics, fluid replacement, homoeopathy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and herbal medicine. Immunization is the standard for prevention.
