You should continue to nebulize your child with asthalin and budecort. Give him a tablet of montair lc kid. There is no harm in giving Piriton CS as it is for cough but his cough will only subside once his asthma is under control. If required, you may give him a short course of oral steroids like omnacortil 5 ml for 3 to 5 days.
