In brief: See your MD

Asthma symptoms in a young child can be caused by multiple different problems.
Your child would be best served by seeing their doctor and perhaps a referral to pediatric pulmonary or a board certified allergist.

In brief: Preventives

For a child with multiple episodes we use preventive medicines as pulmicort in the nebulizer.
Pulmicort helps heal lung inflammation preventing future episodes. We put together an asthma action plan which will help you know the signs, stages of severity of asthma, with a plan for treatment for each stage. Your pediatrician can handle many levels of asthma in your child, may refer if necessary.

In brief: No second hand smoke

Its a bit unusual for a child this age to be diagnosed with asthma, all that wheezes is not asthma.
There are many viral illnesses that affect this age group that can trigger wheezing and may cause a child to behave like an asthmatic but should not meet diagnostic criteria for asthma. Regardless second hand tobacco exposure is poison to any child especially one who is wheezing.
