Does Prolonged Dry Cough Indicate Bronchitis?

My dad has clear lung sounds, but his bronchioles sound inflamed and the breath sounds are rough. He has a dry, nonproductive cough, no fever, no chills, no body aches other than chest pain from coughing so much. I'm thinking it's bronchitis but wanted to get a second opinion.

Hello,

As you explain the situation yes this might be chronic bronchitis but he should do a chest X-ray and a Spirometry test and after having the results his doctor will advise him further.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
