Any suggestions on how to stop a constant cough?

My dad has been hacking his head off for weeks. He can't talk half the time for coughing, any suggestions would help!

Try something to soothe his throat. Warm honey and lemon tea work great. Also, at this time of the year it could be sinus drainage. I am not a doctor, however, and if he has been doing it for weeks, he needs to get it checked. If he is a smoker, this could also have a lot to do with it.....

Okay, well that's good! Try the honey and lemon tea, and get him to see a doc, because the tea will only be a temporary fix.

For a cough that persistent my best advice is to see the doctor.
