Hello dear,
Wheezing is a continuous, coarse, whistling sound produced during breathing due to broncho-constriction (obstruction of smaller airway passages) which is indicative of Hyper-responsiveness of air passages (seasonal allergy or asthma)

Nebulisation or Inhalers will provide symptomatic relief by causing broncho-dilation (dilating the smaller airway passages, relieving the obstruction & increasing airflow to lungs)
Montelukast preparations can also be used as a maintenance therapy to relieve symptoms of seasonal allergies & asthma by reducing broncho-constriction.

There is no need to worry...just make sure that you are well protected from cold, dust & other allergens.
If symptoms still persist, it will be better to consult a Pulmonologist for further management.
Wishing you a good health and speedy recovery.
Thanks & Take care.
