Treatment of wheeze: Wheezing is a common symptom of asthma and is treated with albuterol inhalers for quick relief.

Prescribed albuteol for cough and wheezing, soon noticed a rash and red bumps on body. Stopped inhaler and using benedryl. Rash not going away! 3 days?
Rash, cough & wheeze: Although possible, it's rare to get a rash from albuterol. Have your physician diagnose it; I believe it's not related to the inhaler. Taking Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can worsen the cough and wheezing as well. So I advise you to resume the inhaler immediately in addition to starting a steroid inhaler 2x a day to prevent worsening of your condition. ...Read more

? sa: I am going to assume "sa" is seasonal allergies. So, yes, Benadryl (diphenhydramine) would work for these, but is certainly not the optimal answer. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) tends to be sedating and also needs to be taken 4 times a day for optimal effect. If you are having to take doses that often to keep symptoms under control, should consider alternative treatment for allergies. If "sa" not allergies, please resubmit question. ...Read more
