Thank you for your response.
If there is no fever and he does not have a productive cough, then there is no need to be frightened.
He can continue taking the cough medicine and start on steam inhalations with menthol crystals, four times a day.
Saltwater gargles thrice a day.
Sleep with a head-up tilt of about 30 degrees at night.
Place a humidifier in the room he stays in the most.
Start on an antihistamine like Benadryl or Zyrtec twice a day.
If he develops breathing difficulties, cannot finish sentences, develops a fever or the cough becomes very productive then he should see his doctor for an evaluation.
