Asthma since birth, steron, ventolin nebulizer and seretide puffs, underweight

my son has been asthemtic since birth. he s been using steron, ventilin nebulizer and seretide puffs all these years. is there any medicine that would relieve him of his asthmatic conditions for more than 6 hours? plus, he s 7 years old and his height doesnt match his age, also he s underweight although God knows how much he eats. his teeth havent fallen out either. i need consultation and maybe a different diagnosis which relate all these symptoms together.

Pediatrician 's  Response
Is there family history of asthma? You have not mentioned about the investigations. Is he suffering form eosinophilia? Try to avoid exposure to dust and smoke as far as possible. If there are pet animals it is better to avoid contact with those. See whether the attacks are precipitated by any food. Avoid artificial flavors and preservatives as much as possible. Encourage him to do yogasanas. Reduce intake of dairy products. Long term use of steroids can cause growth retardation. You may try BRESOL syrup after thorough evaluation.
