Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Chronic cough with Unilateral headache are commonly seen with sinusitis.
So better to consult ENT doctor and get done endoscopic examination of sinuses.
He may need antibiotics, antihistamine and painkiller drugs.
Do steam inhalation and warm water gargles 5-6 times a day.
Tell him to drink plenty of fluids orally.
Don't worry, he will be alright.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wishing good health to your husband. Thanks.
