Asthma is an immunological disease (like allergies etc). It could be triggered by powders, perfumes, etc but I can't see it causing it.

In other words, if you have asthma, you have it regardless if someone used baby powder on you.

Its Not recommended to use baby powder on babies and infants anyways. Especially if its Talc powder on female infants which is linked to ovarian cancer. Inhaling of any powder can get into the lungs causing respiratory issues even death. But if you still use or want to.use powder for your baby you can make your own at home which is more natural sweet baby powder.....
