In brief: Yes...

Asthma can be diagnosed at any age.
Allergic triggers can also occur at any age. If you are having symptoms of recurrent bronchospasm, see your doctor for evaluation and treatment as it is a very treatable condition. Most patients can be rendered symptom-free between exacerbations.
