In brief: Stinky poo
If your kid has poop that will clear a room from the stinky smell, and the sweat tastes like salt i might consider that diagnosis.
Most will be well into those symptoms by 4. If your kid only has recurrent respiratory issues its more likely from other origins like allergies or asthma. Share your concerns with your doctor.

In addition, if there is a concern about her growth, cough, sinus disease, CF should be considered. It may be asthma, but the screening test to begin with is a Sweat Chloride test at a local children's hospital.
