Treatment of pertussis

Whooping cough should be suspected in any patient with a prolonged cough more of more than 14 days without fever, hoarseness or wheeze. Isolation of B.pertussis in culture is the gold standard for diagnosis.

Antibiotics such as Azithromycin help to shorten the duration and severity if started early in the course of illness. Supportive treatment includes maintaining good nutrition, oxygenation and hydration.
