I am sorry for the delay as there was a problem with internet connection.
Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for his symptoms.
The pain can be from muscle strain from coughing.
An inflammation, reflux can also be there.

It does not appear to be serious.
However, if the pain gets intense or continues, I would advise to get him an examination by doctor.
You can give him tylenol for pain.
Warm application can be soothing..
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
If you are happy with my answer please click on the Excellent/Good rating.
Wish him healthy life.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
