Brief Answer:
Should resolve soon

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic. I have gone carefully through the details and understand your concern.

It seems that the breathing difficulty and wheezing developed due an allergic component (even if you otherwise do not have allergies or COPD). Treatment is supportive and usually comprises of antiallergic medication and the condition should gradually improve. Taking Montair LC tablet (monteleukast + levocetirizine, prescription medicine) once daily for the next few days should help. Cetirizine is an over the counter alternative that can also be used instead. Also take steam inhalation.

Let me know if I could help further.
