You may have a bronchitis which can be due to a viral infection (most cases), bacterial infection and environmental irritants. Make sure you are resting adequately with adequate fluid intake. Also do not smoke. And please go to a clinic as soon as possible for a complete evaluation. You may have a bacterial infection which should be treated with antibiotics.

You may have bronchitis, in infection or asthma. I recommend seeing a doctor.

Wheezing and a nonproductive cough can occur in asthmatic reactions. An infection doesn't necessarily have to be present, but a mild viral bronchitis may be the cause. An allergic response to various stimuli may also be the cause. See your physician for evaluation and treatment if symptoms persist.
