Can be: We don't know of a way to cure Asthma but spontaneous remission is possible. Meanwhile it is important to manage it as if it is here to stay.

Probably not: Asthma is a chronic condition that may wax and wain but never really goes away. It can be controlled with proper medications and life style changes (avoid allergies and attack inducing situations). Talk it over with your physician before you do anything Good Luck
