My husband was diagnosed almost 2 weeks ago with an pneumonia. He is feeling better, but the dry hacky cough is hanging on. He does have sinus drainage too that might be causing some of the cough. His energy level is still low, but no fever. How long can he expect to continue cough even after most of the infection or virus is gone? He is 52 and a ex-smoker, he quit 7 years ago and this is his first respiratory problem in many years. The cough is improved, but still there. Thank you for any help.
