Your asthma and the nodules are most likely unrelated. Multiple tiny nodules, in your circumstance, are most likely to be benign but the scheduled CT follow-up is appropriate.
Interpretation of the nodules, by the radiologist and pulmonologist, would be enhanced by further information about your geographic location and the incidence of nodules secondary to infection in your general community and also by a review of all previous chest X-rays for comparison with the current ones and the CT Scan.
You should ask your pulmonologist about the most likely diagnosis, given these CT findings.
