Suffering from infant asthma caused due to dust allergy. Using medications, nebuliser and nasal spray. So many medicines required?

Good afternoon, I am a single mom with a little boy of 2 and a half. He was diagonsed with Infant asthma when he was 10 months old. However I believe it is caused mainly by Allergy - especially dust and dust mite as he does not generally wheeze or cough. But when there is a change of season he gets a cough that sounds very similar to croup . he is currently on Nebuliser - Duolin at night before bed, he has one puff seraflo, 1 tablet of singlair, Avamis nasal spray , 5ml Antihistamine and 1ml Valegan. then in the morning nebulise with Ventolin as I find his heart races after the ventolin. He has 4ml Aspelone, 4ml cough mixture, Alergex antihistamine and multivitamines. the Poor child seems to live on medications. Please help me to make sense of this and if it is necessary?

THE MILK ALLERGY SOMETIMES PERSISTS BEYOND 2 YEARS OF AGE AND SPOIL YOUR WHOLE LIFE
AS MILK THEORY SUGGESTS CHILD NEEDS MILK ONLY BREAST FOR 2 YEARS AND AFTER THAT AGE NO NEED OF MILK
WHEN WE ADD MILK AND DIARY PROTEINS THESE ARE ANIMAL PROTEINS AND ANIMAL PROTEINS ARE NOT COMPETIBLE WITH HUMAN PROTEINS CAUSING ALLERGY ASTHMA AND OTHER DISEASES WHICH PERSIST FOR LIFE
IF YOU CAN GET BLOOD SERUM TEST FOR SPECIFIC ANTIBODIES FOR MILK WHEAT POTATO CHANA RICE NUTS EGG AND ELIMINATE THEM ACCORDING TO RESULTS YOU WILL BE FINE IN FEW WEEKS
MEAN WHILE START WITH COMPLETE ELIMINATION OF DIARY AND MILK PROTEINS
