Re: Pertussis

We are now 3 months post- positive pertussis culture here. We were told that once the course of antibiotics has been finished, the child is no longer considered contagious. We did a 5 day course I believe. We dealt with our pediatrician and the state health department. Both said the same. Our vaccinated child didn't get it, and DH and I both got a minor cold as pertussis often appears as in adults. The little two still have a nasty cough occasionally.
