Re-state: Laura y - your message is not very clear. What exactly is the question? If he is on antibiotics... This should clear the ear infection - 7-10 days. You can always use motrin/tylenol to control fever.

Cause of wheezing: Usually this is viral induced in a 2 year old, especially if other children are sick at his daycare. He may benefit from nebulized saline, supplemental oxegen and a trial of steroids. Antibiotics usually not needed with wheezing unless cxr shows consolidation. Get all smokers out of the house till child turns 18.
