Will usage of an inhaler containing steroids for asthma for 4 months, cause any side effect for a child?

In brief: Unlikely

The most common side effect of inhaled steroids, especially over such a short period of time, would be oral thrush.
Make sure your child rinses his mouth after using the inhaler to prevent this.
