There is a chance but I am not sure on the statistics. I also think there is some debate on the topic. Here on this board you will see moms and dads without asthma who have children with asthma and you will see moms and dads with asthma with children with asthma. I have allergy induced asthma when I live in California where my allergies are at their worst. My son's asthma is not allergy induced. So really I don't think ours is a case of inheritance and no one on either side has it. So just as you can get something from your parents, sometimes its just there. I wouldn't worry to much about it. If you already have precautions in place for yourself to reduce flare ups chances are higher that your child won't be exposed to the same allergens or irritants as other children. I hope that makes sense. I would just keep an eye on your child and watch for wheezing or colds that linger. Lots of chest colds, phenomena or bronchitis are all signs that they may have something going on in their lungs.
