In brief: M.D. visit/albuterol

If there is wheezing, a bronchodilator is indicated and your physician can follow up to re evaluate.
Viral illnesses are common triggers of wheezing.

In brief: Treat wheezing

Cough can induce wheezing but like anything in an enclosed system when there are spasms of the airways, this may also come out as cough with wheezing.
See your doctor and treat the wheezing and inflammation, make sure you have a diagnosis. You can take a mucolytic or expectorant to make the coughing easier, but treat the wheezing, foremost.
