In brief: No Cure

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that can be very well-controlled but is not something to be cured.
At 22 years of age you are likely out of the "grey zone" of outgrowing asthma-like symptoms. If you have allergies, these are responsible for 70% of asthma attacks and symptoms. See an allergy and asthma specialist.

Agree with Dr. Mutnick. A small percentage of patients who go on allergy immunotherapy for treatment of allergic asthma do claim to be cured. Many of them might still show evidence of bronchospastic inflammation on PFT but these patients feel really well.
