If you have a child with whooping cough. Please see your doctor right away. This post is only about how to treat it post-collapse.
If there were a collapse, then you need to two do three things:
1. Make them comfortable. The spasm is what exacerbates the condition.
2. Garlic infusions used to kill bacteria and remove mucus ( an expectorant). This is a primary issue.
3. An antispasmotic herb combination: ginger ang honey.
Loading up on vitamin C is a very good thing as a preventative.

This is teaching point for your children to learn: when there's a collapse, we don't play with children who are complaining about headache, feeling hot or chilled, coughing, feeling achey.
