Thank you for providing quick additional info.
Dry coughs are treated with cough suppressants also called antitussives. Dextromethorphan
,codeine are the common one.Other cough suppressants include simple linctus, glycerin and lemon and honey, which coat and soothe the back of the throat.
As he is having persistent dry cough for last two weeks,he needs following tests:
-Sputum culture & sensitivity test
Antibiotics may be prescribed if the bacterial infection is confirmed.As he cant expel out the mucus,he needs broncho dilator medications and cortico steroids to reduce inflammation.Anti histamine medications may also be prescribed.
So for confirmation,I advice your husband to make an appointment with your pulmonary doctor to have these tests done so as to know the confirm underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.
Hope this helped.
