  If a child coughs a lot right after crying, could that be a sign of asthma?

  Mary-Jay Health and Education

  Yes. If you notice that your child continues to have persistent coughing after crying episodes, definitely mention it to your doctor and he'll do some more investigating to determine whether it is indeed asthma. Other things to look out for would be coughing with activity, like when a child can't catch their breath after running or some other type of exercise. Also, wheezing or coughing when they're exposed to things like dust, pollen, or pet dander. Even roach saliva and mice droppings can trigger asthma episodes. If your child is between 3 and 5 years old and is exhibiting symptoms such as chest tightness or breathlessness, that might also signal a problem with asthma.
