Asthma definition

Patient

Q:
Is asthma permanent?

Doctor

A:   Yes, Asthma is condition in which your airways narrow and swell due to an overreaction to certain allergens. This condition can't be cured, but its symptoms can be controlled.
Therefore Asthma could be considered a chronic condition, usually is treated with lifestyles changes such as avoiding smoking, dust, and other allergens that might be recognized by the patient. Inhaled Bronchodilators and Corticoids might also help control a possible asthmatic attack. I hope I cleared your doubt.
