Hi Hemelda,

Adenoids and wheezing can co-exist, enlarged adenoids can cause nasal obstruction worsening the wheezing. First of all, you need to get the x-ray of the adenoids done to look for the amount of obstruction. Depending upon the obstruction it can be further managed. There is no cure for wheezing, only preventive measures can get rid of wheezing.
