IMO it is not so harmless. My DD Lindsey who got Pertussis at 3weeks diagnosed at 5 weeks old is still to this day dealing with the effects from it. She got a cold back in Feb. Her first one of the winter season. You would think it was nothing. Her cold went away, but she has had a cough for the last two months. I have had to take her back to the peds office several times. In fact she and I were talking about how it was dejavu all over again. Lindsey is BACK on Pulmicort which was once a day and now is back up to two times a day. She was then put on Zyrtec, if this does not work we are looking at abuterol treatments 3 times a day. Then it will be testing. I am so frustrated with the whole thing. Ok, sorry to have brought this here. Just MHO that this is not something I would WANT any child to get. Any adult for that matter. Specially after watching my DH go through it. It just strikes me as odd that people would call this a "harmless" disease.
