Unlikely related: the joint pains and asthma are probably not related.The spots may be a rash due to an allergy--and asthma can be triggered by an allergy--these may be related.See a pediatrician.

Immediate eval: Symmetric polyarticular arthritis as well as joint pain in setting of rash raises concern for Churg Stauss vasculitis which has been linked to the leukotriene inhibitor monteleukast which I would stop immediately!The asthma is often quiescent in these patients.
