In brief: Poor Asthma Control

Sounds like you have a history of poorly controlled asthma.
With 4 months of worsening cough and atelectasis on CXR I would recommend seeing a physician who specializes in managing asthma like an allergist or pulmonologist if not already done so in order to get better control of your symptoms.
