Hello,

Persistent cough after a viral episode can be due to bacterial superinfection.

He may need antibiotic to clear it up.

Allergy can have a role in it.

Examination by doctor will find out the factor precipitating it.

I hope this information will help.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
