    Unfortunately, I have absolutely no way of blindly diagnosing your son over the Internet, based solely on the brief information you have posted. It is just not possible, no matter how much I would like to help you. I do not know anything about him, his medical history, the medcines he is taking, his test results, nor do I have a way of examining him. These are all essential component to getting an accurate diagnosis, and all impossible to do over the Internet.

    He may need to see a specialist at this point, and definitely have more diagnostic studies. Whooping cough (pertussis) can be a very serious illness.
