Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Your child could be having bronchial asthma.

Bronchodilators like salbutamol are required during a episode of asthma.

To prevent further attacks steroids like budecort that you are using will be useful.
Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
