Hello.... Sir I understand your concern towards your father's health, I think you should know that asthma is a condition which is triggered by certain factors like allergens( dust, wall paints, industrial smoke, cigarette smokingetc), emotional/ stressful situations, in strenous activities, change in atmospheric temperature eg- more episodes of attack observed in early morning or in the winter season and there might be a history of asthma in their family which might be passed on to them hereditarily... Sir till date there are only measures to prevent recurrent attacks of asthma but there is no permanent cure.... However a person can claim that they have permanent solution for asthma, nothing has yet been proved... With the available medicine like mast cell stabilizers, bronchodilators and corticosteroids inhalers you can manage the condition along with avoidance of coming in contact with triggering factors which I have mentioned above.... If you are still worried about his health kindly consult a pulmonologist for further queries...
