Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. COld and flu can complicate air ways and lead to wheezes and crepitations. You need to take anti histamines, opt for all home remedies and consult a doctor for any possible respiratory tract infection.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
