Cough since 1991

My husband had had a cough since 1991. We started out with ENT, in fact several. Operation on deviated septum, etc.  Then went to an luck....he thought it was in his head...then a pulmonary specialist and infectious disease. No luck. Went to Mayo Clinic.  Nothing!  Very productive cough coughing continously. Back to the pulmonary specialist and he got prescription from Canada - cant remember the name of the inhaler. Then an inhaler became available (Azmacort) that the specialist said would be just as good.  Not!  Steroids work but short term of course.  His cough kind of subsided on its own after about 15 years. then came back about 15 months ago. We did get a new dog. Not sure if that aggravated the cough or not. Tried 40+ different antibiotics. Nothing worked. Going to see yet another ENT. Hopefully something will come of that.
