In brief: See allergist

If you require systemic steroid to control your asthma and nasal symptoms, it is time to consult an allergist.
There are many causes for coughing-uncontrolled asthma, post-nasal drips, sinusitis are just a few of the causes.

In brief: Good that

Your asthma is under control.
You will need to maintain your steroid treatment for at least three months and wean off from your albuterol gradually . Oftentimes we forget that using a nebulizer also loosens up nasal mucus that drains in the back of the throat causing persistent coughing! continue your meds as prescribed. Talk to doctor if concerned or condition worsened.
