Does anything bad happen if someone uses an asthma inhaler for a cold, but didn't have asthma symptoms then?

I've never had asthma before but i'm in belieze and i've been experiencing a lot of wheezing. Should i try and get an inhaler? If so, what kind?
Wheezing: Beside asthma, bronchitis and other lung or heart diseases can cause wheezing. I would suggest you see a local physician for better diagnosis.
