In brief: 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.

In brief: Asthma separate ...

Dyshidrotic eczema, sometimes called Pomphoylx is an itchy skin condition of the hands and feet, characterised by vesicles, fluid filled bubbles.
It is distinct from Atopic Dermatitis which is associated with asthma+hayfever. There are other conditions such as Irritant Contact Dermatitis, or Allergic Contact Dermatitis that can cause itchy rash of (most commonly) the hands. See www.dermnetnz.org

In brief: 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.

People with one of these often have relatives---or themselves-----with the other.
