I think you may be suffering from chronic asthma with acute episode trigger by infection or allergen. Avoid cool drinks and freeze water, avoid smoking. Also, check for an allergen that causing your symptoms.

Continue inhaler and above medicine. Use tablet Deriphyllin twice a day for five days. If symptoms not improved, please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
