In brief: Mgt

Wheezing associated with an acute illness can last for weeks.
It is treated with Albuterol and sometimes a steroid is indicated. I would suggest using the Albuterol every four hours as needed, but if you find this is not resolving the problem or if it is worsening/persisting, please book an appointment and a virtual appointment.
