Saliva aids...: Ask his doctor (s) or dentist to prescribe pilocarpine lozenges or lollipops if appropriate, try to find Xylimelts at local pharmacy, products from PerioSciencres www. PerioSciences.

Homeopathy, actually: This is not the same as an "herbal" treatment. But classical homeopathy actually has many medicines ("remedies") that stimulate healing of cough. Different kinds of coughs correspond to different homeopathic remedies, so you'd have the best chance of success by consulting a homeopath. But the remedy rumex can help a tickling, irritated dry cough that gets worse when undressing or uncovering.
Home remedies: Hydrate well. Consider using a warm air vaporizer. Mix several teaspoons of honey into herbal tea with a squeeze of lemon juice. Or make tea with 2 tsp of marshmallow root bark per 1cup of hot water (steep in a covered pot for at least 5 minutes). Drink several times a day or as needed to relieve coughing. See a physician if your cough is not resolving, difficulty breathing or temp > 104.
None specific: If your cough is of few days and not more than a week and w/o fever, you can increase water intake; do saline gargles at night or 2x/day; increase your vitc intake with fruits or tablets, hopefully helps. If your cough is w/ fever, you need to see an md to r/o bacterial infection. If you're asthmatic with cough, see md asap. For cough >than 2 weeks, you need a doctor's evalauation.
