A previous history of asthma tells me that your airways are sensitive.

Even though you seem to have beaten asthma when you were young but people who have a history of asthma are prone to have symptoms like what you are experiencing later in life.

I think that your symptoms are related to your previous history and that you will benefit from treatment aimed at asthma like montelukast sodium along with loratadine (claritin).

You may also require an inhaler if your symptoms are severe.
