I dont know what whooping couch sounds like.It just sounds like a horse and hes wheezing when hes coughing...Sorta like its a rattle in his chest..And his temp is 100.3 I gave him tylenol for that and a freezer pop to maybe soothe his throat..If that makes since...Im scared im stuck and cant get him to er untill his dad gets off of work by his friend!I terriable!
