See doctor: I realize that you are already under the care of a doctor and that you may even be treated for whooping cough. If your lung function is in reasonable shape, you should ask your doctor to prescribe you a cough suppressant for a few days. If you have not had a chest x-ray or spiral chest ct, perhaps your doctor may order one since you are not getting better. Any mold or cockroach problem at home?
