My teenage son has had a cough for two weeks and coughs about every 30 seconds. We've been to the doctor several times and to a pulmonologist. They have ruled out viruses, have given antibiotics, and have stated that he doesn't have asthma. He is fatigued and can't attend school. His cough is dry, there is no phlegm. We also went to an allergist who gave us some herbal medications that could help support his lungs long-term. But his cough continues and he is in pain. Does anyone have any remedies that have helped this type of situation?
