In brief: Time

Most patients with pertussis will resolved their cough over a 6-12 week time period.
Some of the medications that may help cough from pertussis include steroids and inhalers such as ipratropium. In pulmonary we call this the 100 day cough because it can be so persistent.

In brief: Prevent Spread

Dr milstone's answer is excellent.
In addition, there are antibiotics that do not cure the symptoms, but help minimize the spread.
