what are the symptoms of the whooping cough?

Whooping cough: This special respiratory infection is very dangerous to our young children. Knowing about it is very wise. One with whooping cough probably has a high fever, is under some distress and the cough is a very high pitched unique sounding cough. I would bet you could go to google or you tube and find some audio examples to know the special cough this diagnosis is named for.
