User avatar Hello,

Your wife should be examined by a specialist. Does she produce sputum or is this a dry cough? Does she have a fever? How long has this cough been? Is it recurring?

If it is an infection she may need to take an antibiotic.

If it is an allergy then the cause needs to be identified and she needs to take allergy medicines as prescribed by her doctor.

Asthma is one form of allergy that presents usually with dry cough / shortness of breath that may be exacerbated at night.

Good luck and keep this thread updated.
