Abstract

Whooping cough causes coughing attacks associated with making a “whoop” sound after coughing, turning blue or stopping breathing for a few moments. If a child in a family is diagnosed with whooping cough, treating the rest of the family with erythromycin does not prevent the rest of the family from developing these whooping cough symptoms
