your kid has repeated respiratory infections..
it could be due to allergic bronchitis with secondary infections..
see your paediatrician for the diagnosis and treatment..
nebulisation is a good idea, but it should be advised from paediatrician..
mast cell stabilizer and levocetricine for the prophylaxis against this problems..
later on controlled desensitization can be used..
all the very best..
