Asthma is not caused by a virus. It is hypersensitivity of air passages in lungs to some allergy causing substance. It is not contagious, meaning it does not spread by touch. You have rightly pointed out the hereditary basis of asthma. You should avoid the things which cause you cold and nasal irritation.
