Hi Viniti,

Asthalin nebulisation is given only if the child is having wheezing problems. Whenever there is cold the cough will be present because of the drainage of the secretions post nasally which will induce cough. Please do consult a good ENT specialist as well and get a thorough check up done to rule out any nasal pathology. Till then you can safely use saline nasal drops 1 drop 3 -4 times/day to reduce the cold.
