Thanks for your query,
I can feel your concerns,

She should be given nebulization with salbutamol, frequently till she stop wheezing
, you should also give her simple steam inhalation . This has got very good results.
let me know.
1.Is she running fever?
2.Is there any family history of allergy?
3.Is there been associated nasal blockage?
4.Is there any history of worm infestation?

Wheezing is actually due to narrowing of smaller airways and it get relived by the salbutamol.

Waiting for your response,
Dr XXXXXXX Hussain
