Hello,

Your husband is suffering from a chronic cough and it needs to be investigated. I would advise you to get his chest X-ray done. It may be due to seasonal allergy but it's still advisable to rule out anything serious. You have not mentioned whether your husband smokes or not. Consult a chest physician. He may be needed to be put on antibiotics for a few days.

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

Regards,
