If your kid coughs frequently, mostly has a dry cough and the cough awakes him at night several times during a month and if he has 3 or more bronchiolitis (wheezing) during a year (mostly in winter), you must think about an allergic reaction v/s asthma depending on the severity of the episodes.
Dry cough and/or strange sound (wheezing) while exhalation are the most common chronic symptoms of asthma. The cough is worse at night. It can be triggered by respiratory infections, inhalant allergens, physical activities… Older kids and adults will report shortness of breath or unspecific chest pain.
