How safe is Asthalin and Nebulizer for small children ?

Dear Sir, My child is 3.5 yrs old. He has cold and cough regularly once in 10 days. Our doctor says he is a allergic child and so give generally Respira, Omnacortil and when the wheezing is high, the doc recommends Asthalin Nebulizer 3 times a day. Just i wanted to know about the safety of Asthalin and giving Nebulizer 3 times a day. Any alternatives for this? Or this is OK?

thanks for query,
it seems that your child is having Allergic bronchitis.
It is possible that he might have eosinophilia most probably due to worm infestation.
Go for blood for Tc,DC,eosinophilic count.
Go for stool test for worms.
After reports go for treatment accordingly.
If this is the cause he will be completely alright.
Asthalin and nebulizer is safe and there is no harm gicen as and when required.
Ok and bye.
