should i see an allergist if i keep getting a bronchial infection?

I have had a cold for few weeks and it never totally goes away, it comes back and now I have a bronchial infection. This is not the first time this has happened. I am also trying to see how I can build my immune system. Im not sure if its weakened, but I know a cold should not linger, start to go away, then relapse. Any info is welcomed.

I would see an allergist who is also an immunologist, not all of them specialize in immunology. But you might also consider seeing a pulmonologist first, which is where I would start.  (+ info)

What is inflammed bronchial tubes and what's the treatment?

My Doctor put me on Symbicort (two squirts twice a day). But it's been 10 days and I'm still a little weak and breathing maybe a little better.

Inflamed bronchii is also called bronchitis. Symbicort both combats the histaminergic response which causes inflammation and induces smooth muscle relaxation, opening your tubes.  (+ info)

how do i get rid of bronchial infections?

how do i clear catarh when antibiotics dont work.i get chest infections every 3 months.this one wont shift.im 56 and dont smoke.had exrays.

I was the same, constant bronchial infections most of my life, ever since the first one when I was 8 yo.

Finally when I was 27 and coughing constantly one doctor, who had already seen me several times, went out on a limb and said perhaps you have bronchial asthma. He said if ventolin (the blue inhaler) works to clear the phlegm/cough then it must be asthma because ventolin doesn't fix anything else. It did work to clear the airways. It took 3 years of high dosage steroids (not the illegal sort that make you big) to get my lungs healthy again. Now I only ever need the steroids if I get an ordinary cold or flu and I hardly ever use the ventolin.

Perhaps you should discuss this possibility with your doctor. Even if you don't have asthma, steroids may help strengthen your lungs and bronchial tubes.  (+ info)
