Hello dear,

Wheezing is caused due to broncho-constriction (obstruction of smaller airway passages) which is indicative of Hyper-responsiveness of air passages (seasonal allergy or asthma)

Management consists of:

1. Inhaler (containing a short acting bronchodilator & cortico steroid) - provide symptomatic relief by causing broncho-dilation (dilating the smaller airway passages, relieving the obstruction & increasing airflow to lungs)
So, it can be used during an acute attack.

2. Montelukast preparations- used as a maintenance therapy to relieve symptoms of asthma.

3. Antihistamines can also be used to provide symptomatic relief.

4. Protection from exposure to cold, dust or other allergens.

Wishing you a good health.
Thanks & take care.
