It depends on the reason for your asthma. If it is from allergies then it can go away if you eliminate the things that give you allergies. Furthermore some people have their asthma disappear and arise depending on the climate they are in. I don't get asthma in a humid climate, but in a dry one I struggle with mine. HOWEVER generally asthma is a chronic condition. Some children do outgrow asthma, but not all. Also sometimes an emotional event can trigger asthma, which can then go away once that it sorted out. My asthma is however permanent and so is other people's with the real version. The best thing if you have asthma is to use your medication EVERY day as indicated, regardless of how you feel.
I've also cutt out all diary products. It triggers my asthma so badly and I swim to try and strenghten my lungs. winter is such a depressing month because I just can't sleep or breathe properly. As for the flu, exactly the same. exercise also triggers mine. I hate this bloody thing. But what is interesting I only started getting asthma at age 18. Mine was dormant for the first years of my life and all I had was a chronic post nasal drip.
You're welcome. My boyfriend was almost exactly the same as you, however because he used his medication as he should have (his mother is also a doctor- which helped) he stopped getting it around age 18. Just be careful because it can still be triggered by certain events, so don't be surprised if you OCCASSIONALLY get a light asthmatic attack.
My lungs have always been my Achilles heel. I've had asthma, chronic and acute bronchitis much of my life.
I've been pretty good the last several years though sometimes allergies will set asthma off and every time I have a cold or flu I usually suffer asthma for a week to a month afterword. Dairy also sets my asthma off.
I had baby asthma, it stopped around six or seven, I think. I had it because my mother smoked cigarettes while she was pregnant with me. I was also two weeks premature and had jaundice(yellowing of the skin or eyes).
It does go away, but depends greatly on why you have it.
My boyfriend was 3 months premature and also doesn't use his inhaler anymore. You can outgrow it. Also if you are healthy and you have developed strong lungs (which you can through exercise like swimming) then it should stay away.
I was a preemie and I was diagnosed when i was like 4. I use to have attacks like every month or so. For the last 5 or 6 years, I haven't had an attack. That's the reason for my question. Thanks for the advice!!! =]
No we aren't. I have asthma and I know of people whose have disapeared. Not giving a valid reason or answer and calling people stupid, makes you look stupid. READ the answers. Maybe you'll learn something.
Actually she is right. My boyfriend's disappeared almost completely around age 18. It depends on your reasons and where you live.
Yep, and I also get it if I eat foods with a lot of colourants and preservatives. It just really depends on your triggers.
no it never goes away, it does become less frequent but asthma is for life. you learn how to deal with it and all
I forgot to mention I haven't used/owned an inhaler in like 5 years... And I was 2 months 3weeks Premature.
I never heard of dairy triggering an attack... That's a new 1, to me at least.
