Is it even worth applying with my Asthma history?

I've heard of a few cases where people thought they were in the clear because they passed the 'no asthma symptoms for 4 years' rule but ended getting declared medically unfit because they had a certain kind of oral steroid treatment. I have a childhood asthma history so I rang up my GP to check and it turns out I did have oral steroid treatments. Once when I was 2 and again when I was 3.

Is there anywhere where I can find more detailed guidelines about this or is my application dead before I even started it?
 
Many very young children develop asthma....but many quickly grow out of it. If no re occurence slap in the application, as Dredd says, you have nothing to loose....

Pretty sure I did too as i had a couple of asthma attacks growing up but just passed medical. No one here can give a definitive answer. Why don’t you just slap your application in.. see what happens

I was prescribed an inhaler within the 4 year range before applying and it was noted that I had symptoms of asthma but was never diagnosed. Also had to get a second opinion when applying and I got in. Stick in the application and apply as a AET

Check the JSP 950:

Have recently come through a medical appeal due to childhood asthma. Currently awaiting a career discussion but fully passed medical and fitness test. Although, due to asthma I am ineligible for any aircrew roles (not a problem for me) but if that's your ambition I would be prepared for that outcome.

Everyone's process is different but if you have any questions, I can potentially give you my version of events which may help.
