You have mentioned that our wife had fever 5 days back.
This is typical of viral infections ,to present with fever followed by dry cough which will persist for 7- 10 days.
If you believe in allopathy you can give her cough syrup with codeine or dextromethorphan as cough suppressant.
Let a doctor examine her,rule out wheezing and then prescribe cough syrup.
All the best
