Brief Answer:
Supportive care. sequelae of rhinitis

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking

I read your question and i understand your concern. You had simple allergic rhinitis followed by airways involvement that is causing the cough and wheeze. Age of 70 is making the recovery slower. If there is fever then you may need an antibiotic otherwise , supportive care with cough suppressants, supportive care with fluids, humidifiers, prevention of allergens, wearing a mask, reduced out going in XXXXXXX and dusk times etc.

Take some anti histamines as well like benadryl and continue home remedies. Green herbal tea mixed with honey along with other warm comforting beverages will help as well.

I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and dont forget to close the discussion please.
