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. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
