    Mild asthma might not need to be treated every day, say US researchers.
    A "preventer" inhaler containing corticosteroid is part of many asthma sufferers' daily routine, but it can result in reduced growth and children often forget to take it.
    This study, published in The Lancet shows that it is possible to manage the symptoms without a daily dose.
    Asthma UK said daily treatment was still the most effective, and concerned patients should speak to their doctor.
    The disease causes inflammation of the tubes which carry air to and from the lungs. If they become irritated, then the airways narrow, sticky mucus is produced and breathing becomes difficult.
    More than 5 million people in the UK are being treated for the illness and Asthma UK estimates 1.1 million have asthma which is mild and under control.
