Allergic or non allergic every cough more than 15 days requires investigations like CBC;ESR;X-ray chest which are basic investigations to rule out tuberculosis.Even if the cough is allergic then you will have to find out the food;chocolate;drink what is the exact cause so that he can be treated.Also allergic cough should subside after anti allergic treatment.Please consult your paediatrician and get investigated then follow it with treatment.
