Brief Answer:
You can give nebulisation after 6 hours.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Asthalin inhaler is almost as effective as nebulisation for the relief from wheezing. If there is no acute respiratory distress, you should give nebulisation at least after six hours of using inhaler.
In case the wheezing is persistent even after nebulisation then do consider visiting his pediatrician for a physical examination and a steroid inhaler.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
