Your father seems to be suffering from bronchial asthma. You need to get him evaluated by a Pulmonologist/ Chest Physician. Investigations that may be required are chest xray, serum IgE levels and pulmonary function test in consultation with the Pulmonologist. Depending on the evaluation results he may be prescribed certain inhalers and oral medications along with a nasal spray. Also he is a candidate for yearly flu vaccination and 5 yearly pneumococcal vaccination. Depending on your location in India, you may find a pulmonologist. A list is availbale on this website:
