Asthma: IF you have been coughing, feel tightness in the chest, breathing faster, then you may be wheezing. You do not have these symptoms and have been just coughing then you may try Albuterol inhaler. If your cough resolves and breathing gets better then you may have cough variant asthma or wheezing.
