Thanks for posting query
Budate and asthalin inhalers are not for management for cough. They are useful in treatment of hyper reactive airway diseases( Bronchial asthma). You have to be sure whether he has been properly immunised because severe cough may be due to Pertussis.Persistent cough may be due to bronchitis very common in children.
I would suggest you to consult a doctor for proper respiratory workup not to use inhalers for cough only.
I hope this answers your query effectively.
