My Son is 4 He has been having coughing fits

Patient : My Son is 4. He has been having coughing fits when he wakes up and at night, ALL night. Delsym and Triaminic worked a little, but last night I did a breathing treatment left over from when he had RSV a year ago. Worked like a charm. No coughing last night. NONE. And only a slight cough this morning. He's just like me in that this happens with the change of weather. I was told I have asthma and am on Advair. Does he have asthma? I have asked his pediatrician and she says he's too young to say for sure.
