In brief: Cough, wheeze, SOB
Coughing is the most common symptom of asthma especially if cough occurs with exercise or laughing.
Colds that routinely go to the chest are very common in patients with asthma. Wheezing and shortness of breath may also occur with colds or exercise, but cough is the most common symptom.

In brief: Asthma in children
Asthma in children can present with cough, worse at night & with activity, difficulty breathing, chest tightness & wheezing.
There is no cure for asthma but can be controlled by different kinds of medication, bronchodilator, steroids, avoiding triggers, such as passive smoking, pollution, dust, fumes .Desensitization might be considered a cure if the patient responds to it.
