Can a person develop asthma at adulthood?

More like how does a person develop asthma? It's not really caused...
Contact with allergens, certain irritants, or exposure to viral infections as an infant or in early childhood when the immune system isn't fully mature have been linked to developing asthma. Exposure to certain chemicals and dusts in the workplace may also play a significant role in adult-onset asthma.

It often returns sometimes though. I don't think it ever really goes away...
Sometimes, a child's asthma goes away temporarily, only to return a few years later. But other children with asthma particularly those with severe asthma never outgrow it.
