About Dr Doug Jenkinson

This is the most comprehensive site about whoopingcough-pertussis (W/P).

Have you had a choking and frightening cough for weeks that nobody can diagnose? It could be whooping cough.

It is up to 10 times more common than official figures suggest.

I am a family doctor who has studied it for over 40 years at Keyworth Medical Practice, Nottinghamshire, England.

This site was created  to help adults diagnose themselves in 2000.

You can hear it, see it,  find out everything you want to know.

You can email information and comments to me or buy unlimited personal advice.
