I wasn't born with asthma either, goodguy. I was diagnosed with asthma when I was in my early twenties. As far as whether it will go away when you grow older, every individual is difference. It's important to find out your allergy triggers and try to stay away from the things that trigger your asthma. My dad had asthma too. I don't know if the tendency towards asthma can be inherited. My dad was very allergic to cat dander. Anyway, it's important to find out your allergy triggers. Common ones are cold weather, cigarette smoke. Those are the ones that come to my mind right now. I hope my comments have been helpful.
