Best Answer

Yes Asthma is much more common in childhood with up to 60% of children growing out of it. After late childhood (teens) it is uncommon to develop asthma except that related to occupation. This can be due to allergens such as pet fur or irritants such as chemicals. Adult onset asthma could also be brought on by pets at home or cockroaches. If you are a smoker it is more likely to be COPD.
