I'm mildly asthmatic, but beyond needing to use my inhaler every now and again (but quite a lot when I get ill), it rarely has much of an effect on my life. I'm planning on, ironically, doing a degree in chemistry. Is asthma something I should declare on my UCAS?

I shouldn't think so, as long as it doesn't have an influential effect on your studies.

Well it is neither a qualification, a university, an achievement, nor an extenuating circumstance, so no.

Long-standing health conditions

I saw Southhampton uni listed is as examples of things that would go under that section, but UCAS didn't, so I'm a bit confused really

You only select that if "You have a long standing illness or health condition such as cancer, HIV, diabetes, chronic heart disease or epilepsy" so no.

If it's serious, so you've had a lot of time off school due to it, then it should be included. If it's as mild as you say then leave it out.

I have had to take some time off school for it, but it would add up to maybe a week to a fortnight per academic year. Not sure if that's worth mentioning? I'd suspect not, but I don't know...

No. The university may send you a medical form later to check if you have any conditions that impact on your studies. If you will need any special precautions in the lab to avoid triggering your asthma mention it then
