Thank you for your query.

An audible wheeze which has not responded to the medication which you gave for upper respiratory tract infection needs to be evaluated and managed accordingly. Kindly discuss with your doctor and put your son on broncho-dilator medication for relief.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
