Cough cause: You do not mention it but your dad may be on an ACE (angiotensin converting enzyme) inhibitor for high blood pressure. A well known side effect of that class of drugs is cough. It usually diminishes with time but if it is too much for him his doc can stop the med and manage his B/P with other medicine.
