In brief: Probably the Same

Prevention and long-term control includes avoiding triggers of asthma, such as allergens, smoking and infections.
Sometimes daily medicines such as inhaled bronchodilators, steroids, or oral leukotriene inhibitors singularly or in combination are necessary to prevent asthma.For this type of therapy, consult your doctor.

Prevention refers to things you do before developing the disease. There is no sure ways to prevent asthma. Long-term management refers to things you do once you have asthma to keep it under control. Not smoking or being exposed to it may fall under both headings.

In brief: Not much

The prevention of an attack is one of the main goals of long term therapy for asthma.
Avoiding triggers, minimizing inflammation, and treating allergies (if present), treating reflux, exercise, are all part and parcel of both.
