Coughing through the night. How to treat this condition ?

Hi, my husband has an odd problem for more than a month now intermittently. He coughs through the night, whereas in the day he is completely fine. It is basically after the dinner and he complains of acid coming up and also congestion in chest . Whenever we consult a doctor , they give him antibiotics , thinking it is some kind of allergy related to the weather. We were thinking that it will get better after one or two rains and is because of dryness of weather, which also did not happen. Please suggest us what the diagnosis and prognosis could be, and how to treat this condition.

Your husband seems to be suffering from acute respiratory tract infection and he probably has eosinophilia. So get a total and differential count of blood and a chest X-ray done.
It may also be due to worm infestation. So go for a stool test and throat smear too.
Let him do warm saline gargle.
And give an antiallergic and a cough syrup.
And please consult your family physician, he will guide you.
Don't you worry.
Take care.
