Asthma is absolutely positively not contagious.

Hi, asthma is not a communicable disease.  IE - there is NO WAY anyone can "catch" it from another person.  Asthma is most comonly genetic in origin although people can develop asthma after exposure to strong chemicals, large abounts of dust and other irritiants.  

I hope that puts your mind at rest.
