In brief: 100 days

Whooping cough is also known as the "100 day cough".
The symptoms may not last that long and towards the end the frequency and severity of the cough should lesson. Once symptoms stop an routine viral illness may trigger a return of the cough but it is usually short lived and will return to normal within a week or two.
