In brief: Common medications
School-aged children with cough-variant asthma, exercise-induced asthma, or regular asthma can use steroid inhalers (such as flovent) to reduce swelling, mucus, and "sensitivity" in the airways.
Bronchodilators such as albuterol (ventolin, proventil) or xopenex (levalbuterol) enlarge the diameter of the airways to help air flow and mucus come out of the lungs. Singulair chewables are another preventive medicine.

In brief: Your question ??
This is a relatively standard approach to asthma, including cough variant asthma .
I like my kids to do the Flovent 2x daily if they are coughing for any reason & 1x daily if their coughing stops.
