Dh has a terrible cough. Not the kind that is caused by a dry throat or a tickle in the throat, but the kind that is caused by the lungs needing to take in more air so he coughs. He's been told this is an asthmatic cough and it is caused by his seasonal allergies. So if he can keep his allergies under control, the cough is under control, but several times a year this simply isn't possible. The meds stop working and back comes the cough. Not only is it painful for him, but it keeps us all up at night.
He has tried other forms of allergy control like local honey, herbs, neti pot, etc. but nothing works reliably. Usually the meds are enough, but right now they aren't and we all need more sleep! I'll note that food allergies do run in his family, but not the typical top 8. He has mild allergies to certain fruits. It doesn't appear that the cough is related to any foods.
Has anyone dealt with an allergen induced asthmatic cough? Any advice? Thanks!!
