      Hello Sorry to hear that your dad is unwell. One of the most common causes of a cough is a cold or flu virus and this type of cough should clear up relatively quickly. If it has persisted or is painful, this may indicate that he has developed some form of bacterial infection. Is your dad taking any medication or has he been treated by the doctor?
