    cute Health: Stop that cough.Boost ur immunity(resistan

    Whooping cough, also call petussis
    bacteria, is an acute, highly
    communicable infection of the respi-
    ratory tract by Brodetellia pertussis
    bacteria. During coughing patient
    spreads the virus through droplets.

    Symptoms
    The disease runs a lengthy period of
    six to eight weeks. Initially, it has flu
    like symptoms, eg., cold and fever foll-
    owed by bouts of severe and prolonged
    cough. This is usually followed by a
    'whoop' or vomiting, which may be
    absent in children below one year.

    If not consulted doctor, whooping
    cough might lead to conjunctival
    hemorrhage (bleeding from the white
    pat of eye), hernia (popping out of
    of the intestine throgh the skin near
    groin) and bursting of lung. It can also
    lead to pneumonia and flared up the
    old tuberculosis (once had to someone)
    due to decreased immunity ( yaani
    body resistance). The brain can also
    involved leading to convulsions
    (Kanpkapi).

    Treatment.

    Immediately Physcian or Peditrician
    (for children) be consulted
    for complete checkup. Adequate
    nutrition, hydration and avoiding
    factors such as crying. Doctor will
    provide some antibiotics to control
    and cure the problems. Vigilant
    observation for complicaions and
    their early treatment can prevent
    hospitalisation.
