Asthma scare: Eczema has some overlap with allergies and these do sometimes have overlap with asthma. You shouldn't worry about this, but it is possible, not likely.

Relax: Your age is listed as 18 years. If you have not developed symptomatic asthma by now the chances of it happening are minimal.Asthma comes in a broad spectrum of expressions, from a mild cough variant form to those that require multiple medications and occasional hospital care. Males with significant asthma will generally present with problems by a year of age.
