I agree with you, if the cough is persistent one should do at least a Chest x/ray, blood tests to see if there is still underlying infection and an IGE level to check for allergies, and send away some of the fluid he is couging up to the lab for MCS. He may have an asthmatic condition post infection and if so, a lung function test will show this.
