Hi... by what you quote I feel that this could be a viral illness which is presenting itself like this Rash. This cough and cold could also be because of the same viral infection. I suggest you to continue the inhaler which you are currently using. I also suggest you to get the kid examined by your pediatrician. I am telling this keeping in mind your kids chronic lung disease.
