hello,
some children are prone for seasonal weather changes, and sneezing can be a symptom for his allergic type.
if the child has runny nose, a nasal decongestion Otrivin nasal drops 1 drop Both nostrils , is helpful.
Since parent is having episodic asthama, child may be investigated for the same using PEFR at any pediatric hospital.
recurrant cold can be treated symptomatically with Tab. Sinarest 1/2 tab thrice a day .

Looks like allergic rhinitis, is related to asthma.
Avoid triggers like dust, mites, pets, pollen and someone smoking in house.
Your doctor may prescribe steroid nasal spray for 5-10 days, if severe - despite antihistamines, decongestant.
You may try frequent nasal rinsing with normal saline.
