A young adult family member has an irritating tic, an almost constant, deep short cough - series of 4-6 about every 2-10 minutes. he has alergies and blames it on that, but many people have alergies and don't have that tic. Says he feels like something in his throat, nothing found medically to back that up. This actually started as a constant throat clearing, about the same frequency and then progressed to the short, gutteral cough. What can do done to fix this? I'm afraid it will hinder his job search and may even cause job/empolyment problems later. He can control it as he says he did not cough even once during his interview, which was maybe 40 minutes long.
Thanks for your help.
