See a doctor: The sound of wheezing is from air vibration..It can be a heart or lung symptom, and needs to be checked out. Asthma and heart disease can sound the same so seeing a doctor is crucial.

Take a seat: Truly, there is nothing available over-the-counter for wheezing...And rightly so. Bronchodilators like albuterol are the medication that give your immediate relief of wheezing but overuse can lead to deadly outcomes. Your personal doctor is prepared to evaluate & treat wheezing. Sometimes your doctor will enlist the assistance of an allergist or pulmonologist. Please make an appointment to see one.
