Phlegm: sounds like you have a post nasal drip. try taking mucinex, (guaifenesin) and avoiding dairy foods for a while and see if this helps. uncontrolled gastritis could also cause post nasal drip. do you have gerd or sour sensation, heart burn. then i would suggest you take prilosec 1 tablet a day.

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.

Bronchospasm ....: You may have some bronchospasm contributing to your symptoms. Perhaps a trial of a bronchodilator inhaler with a steroid inhaler would be worthwhile to see if the cough/congestion resolves further. You may have partial treatment with your current regimen. See your doctor to try this approach. If you smoke, you need to quit to decrease airway inflammation.

I would add try nasal saline and pillow/mattress covers, since your symptoms improved following treatment for allergies.
