Big differences: A respiratory infection is an acute , infection that generally improves with antibiotic therapy. Asthma is a chronic condition. Attacks are usual brought on by "triggers" like animal dander, dust mites, cold air, etc. If you suspect asthma, get checked by your physician and treated if needed. Good luck.
