What does chronic cough along with wheezing indicate?

Recently I had a virus or flu which included a terrible cough with wheezing. I was on antibiotic, steroids, and an inhaler. That was about a month ago, but still have a lot of wheezing and some coughing. Today I decided to try not to have any dairy products and I feel a lot better with a lot less wheezing. Any connection?

Dairy products can cause laryngopharyngeal reflux. It can be your problem. In such a case, better to avoid dairy products.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
