Hi !
Asthma can be controlled and managed if triggering factors are taken care off.It is not curable bcoz if trigerring factors come,it can come.
Its better to know them to avoid like:
pollen ,dust,smoke odours,perfumes and sprays etc.
viral infections.
sternous exercise.
sudden change in weather.
laughing or crying loud.
even food preservatives.

Asthma can be inherited if there is family history,but it is matter of chance.So, Donot worry if children will be effected or not..

Astma is easily managable and attacks are prevenatble. Continue with your inhailers. Get some respiratory exercises learnt from your doctor, it will go long way to help you. Avoid cold drinks and Icecream.
