An acupressure point that has been known to stop a cough is the one near the end of the middle finger. With the fingers of your right hand, squeeze the top joint of the left hand’s middle finger. Keep squeezing until you stop wheezing. This usually works right away, so you shouldn’t need to switch hands. Then take a deep breath and relax.
