In brief: It may

It is thought asthma never really goes away.
Just be aware of the signs and take care of your self. Avoid any triggers and never smoke.

In brief: Asthma - yes

Once you have asthma, you generally always have asthma.
It is just that your airways get larger as you age and grow. Aggravating factors such as tobacco, respiratory illness, allergic reactions and sensitivities may set off symptoms of asthma.
