In brief: Not curable
Asthma is not curable but there are plenty of treatments available to control and relieve symptoms.
Asthmatics can experience long symptom-free intervals but there is no cure at this time. See your doctor for the best treatment possible for you.

In brief: Complex answer
Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the lungs that can wax and wane over time.
Treatment of asthma requires a thorough history and physical exam. Triggers should be identified through skin testing. Treatment is a combination of avoidance of allergens, use of inhaled corticosteroids and / or brochodilators. There are other medicines that can be used as well. Treatment may be individualized.
