Health Remedies - Whooping Cough

Product Categories

Whooping cough is a highly contagious respiratory tract infection caused by the bacteria bordetella pertussis. It derived its name from a characteristic severe hacking cough followed by a high-pitched intake of breath that sounds like "whoop". It can occur at any age, but is usually more severe in infants. The infection easily spreads from person to person through respiratory secretions or mucus, which can be emitted during coughing or sneezing. The incubation period is about 7 to 14 days.

The symptoms are usually mild in the beginning and resembles that of a "common cold". It may be characterized by running nose, nasal congestion, sneezing, red and watery eyes, mild fever, dry cough, weakness and loss of appetite. After a week or two, signs and symptoms become worse and usually include severe coughing attacks that bring up thick phlegm, coughing attacks in multiple exhausting bursts and fatigue due to coughing. Each cough may be followed by a "whooping" sound as the child breathes in. This stage lasts 2-4 weeks, followed by a recovery phase of gradually diminishing coughing for 2-3 weeks, but may last longer.
