Tell me the details about nebulizer

Hi, i want to know more about nebulizer. Is it used for normal cold and running nose and blocking nose?My 2 and half year old child had cold about 3 weeks ago and it turned to viral fever . Then all are become normal and now she have running nose and mild cough sounds like phlegm inside again. She feels irritation in throat . Now bad climate here(Bangalore). I am from Kerala. When children are hospitalized for normal cold, running nose, blocking nose etc. they(in kerala) give nebulizer treatment for children and the children get fast relief. My parents suggest me nebulizer for my baby. My brother bought it for his children. But i heard that nebulizer is usually used for Asthma . What will I do? Can I buy it for my baby??
