    He needs to see a doctor. Sounds like either brochitis or pnemonia. Does he have a fever?

    I agree. Go to the doc. Is he wheezing? It could be anything from bronchitis, to pnuemonia, to a sinus infection. I came down with the latter, which the doctor found to be the cause of my horrible cough yesterday. So I got some antibiotics. Your boyfriend may need some antibiotics, or an inhaler, etc.
