Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Does he also have breathing problem?
Is he a smoker?
Whatever treatment you go with you have to realise that if he is a smoker then he has to quit smoking.
He needs treatment with antibiotics and a expectorant. 
Kindly consult a pulmonologist or a general physician in person for further evaluation and management. 
Best regards.
