The Cause: Be on the lookout because this is a highly contagious disease that can lead to serious health problems. It's definitely worse than a regular cough and you'll hear the iconic "whoop" sound with it.
The Cure: Since infants are at the highest risk for severe complications to develop, you should take every precaution if they are around. Consider wearing a mouth mask and taking ibuprofen to reduce the swelling in the throat.
The Cause: Once thought to be wiped out, TB has resurged across the country and reports of extreme tiredness, night sweats, and a persistent cough seem to pop up every day from this infection.
The Cure: Awareness is the first defense to contracting tuberculosis. After a doctor diagnoses a patient, they can begin the six months of antibiotic treatment which cures 99% of cases.
