Thank you for your query,
Wheezing is not always audible to human ear and needs examination of the lungs with a stethoscope by a doctor.
And dont use medication without a doctor prescription and examination of the child as there are various medications are there for different types of cough.
So I advise you to consult Pediatrician and get your child examined.
Hope I have answered your query.
