In brief: Possibly

Allergists typically will say that asthma or eia goes into "remission".
It may become asymptomatic for a period of time, but we are always wary of a recurrence of symptoms. Many times asthma symptoms improve during the teen years and we see symptoms develop again as an adult.

In brief: Mostly

We never speak of people outgrowing asthma.
However, exercise-induced asthma is the mildest form, and often becomes quiescent in the twenties and thirties. Aggressively controlling your allergies, by minimizing your exposure to the allergens your allergist has identified as the problem, and using medications to control any remaining symptoms, will increase your chances that your asthma won't recur.
