    While you wait to get into the doctor for his appointment, you can increase the humidity in your home and give him expectorants such as Mucinex. He needs to increase his fluid intake as well.

    Unfortunately, we cannot diagnose over the internet, so he will need to see a doctor. What I have suggested is only a temporary assist until he is seen.
