Yes: The basline symptoms may improve for years on end but you are always at risk of a flare. For that reason, getting annual flu shots are critical.

Possible: Some people can out grow asthma and get flare ups only when they are sick , on the other hand there are others who continue to have asthma .But asthma can be well controlled with inhalers and people can lead a normal life carrying on all activities without symptoms .
