In brief: Get checked

Non-productive cough that is wheezy and worsened at night or by respiratory irritants is likely asthma, but there are other possibilities (chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis, etc) that are also worth checking out.
See a lung specialist or your primary care doctor if you can't see a specialist without a referral.
