You are having a condition called " Bronchial Hyperreactivity " . it is usually associated with infections such as running nose etc., and is associated with the airways/bronchi constricting in response to food/drink of certain nature. Simply put this is an allergic reaction to certain foods. You will have to avoid the foods that induce such a reaction and continue treatment for asthma. Inhaled steroids have show positive effects in improving the symptoms.
