Childhood Asthma?!?!?

My 5 year old son has a persistent cough and we are investigating whether he has asthma or allergy induced asthma.  He has been given the blue inhaler and an anti- histamine to take daily.  But the nurse practitioner says his symptoms sound like proper asthma or mold induced asthma requiring the brown/steroid inhaler.  His cough has improved from what it was 2-3 months ago....and I am nervous to start the blue inhaler and anti-histamine.  (let's just say that we have had both good and bad experiences with conventional medicine).

I would love any and all advice on this.  Especially regarding medication, diet, homeopathy....anything really! Thanks.
