Wheezing is a common symptom of respiratory illness. The wheezing sound occurs due to air moving through narrow airways, causing a gruff, high-pitched whistle while breathing.
Wheezing relief can be brought about by the following methods:
Antibiotics in the case of infections like bronchiolitis
Drinking warm liquids
Avoiding allergens like pollen, dust, bees, pets, etc
OTC cough medication (syrup, cough drops, etc)
Medication is given based on the underlying cause. For asthma, inhaled corticosteroids and bronchodilators are prescribed. Antibiotics will be given to treat infections like bronchiolitis. Epipens may be given to treat allergic reactions. Seek medical assistance for the right medication.
Bronchitis lasts about 1-2 weeks. However, asthma and allergies are life-long, and measures must be taken to control long-term symptoms.
Wheezing is caused by constricted airways in the lungs. Hence, it is a problem of the lungs and not the throat.
