In brief: Asthma
A good history , physical and spirometry can help to make the diagnosis.
Look out for the typical symptoms of cough, wheeze, dyspnea, sputum production.

In brief: See a doc
A thorough history and physical exam by a doc can help making the diagnosis.
If the child is old enough...Maybe 6 years or more, some testing can be done right in the office...It is called spirometry...And can help determine the diagnosis.
