In brief: Inflamed/spasm

I will add to the previous answer: If the problem is allergic, avoidance of triggers is appropriate after they have been identified.
If medications failed or caused too much side effects, allergy shots should be considered since they do provide long-term benefits even after the treatment has been discontinued for many. Consider an allergy consult.

In brief: Air way constriction

Asthma is reversible air way constriction.
There is no cure for asthma, but if it is managed correctly you can lead a normal life without any major complications. Asthma causes the airways to become inflamed the makes them narrow. This in turn makes it difficult to breath. If you can avoid triggers and take medication to help prevent the inflammation from starting you can live a normal life.
