Thanks for posting your query

Christain Medical College in Vellore is a very good institute and you can visit the Pulmonary Department there. First you can take appointment in OPD for Pulmonary Medicine on Wednesday / Saturday.

The details of the department are :
Email ID: YYYY@YYYY ; Phone: 0416-0000

Doctors there are very knowledgable and provide utmost care to patients. CMC has even started an online appointment facility in which you can take prior appointments in general or private basis depending on your choice.

Hope this answers your query.I will be available for follow up if any.

Thanks for the follow up

Many children develop asthma symptoms before 5 years of age and the symptoms differ in every child. It can get better or worsen with time.

Though asthma cannot be cured completely but symptoms can be reduced by use of medications.
The medications which she has been provided are fine. But they also depend on the symptoms which she has been presenting and how she is responding to the drugs. So you need to review with a doctor periodically and accordingly medications may have to be altered.

It is very necessary to examine the lung and clinically assess the child. A proper opinon regarding her condition can be formulated only after evaluation. If inspite of the medications, she develops difficulty in breathing you can take a second opinion from another Doctor.

Wishing her Good Health

Thanks again for the follow up

If difficulty in breathing is present everytime she eats cold items and is persistent since childhood it could be due to any lung disorder.But as I explained you that it is very necessary to assess the child clinically by examination and investigations as X XXXXXXX Chest to rule out the exact cause.It is difficult to comment regarding her condition without evaluation.
