My husband has had a productive cough for two weeks, with recurrent mild fever — he was doing better but today his fever went up to 103 f. He was placed on doxycycline for three weeks in May after a tick bite bc Doctor was worried about Lyme disease?

In brief: Pneumonia

Or other lung diseases will have to be ruled out.
It sounds like he had a viral bronchitis, but symptoms should not last more than 1-2 weeks. Would suggest an urgent visit with his doc for an exam and imaging as necessary. Symptoms are not likely to be related to Lyme disease.
