I was diagnosed with adult asthma around 2 years ago now after a bad chest infection which I believe triggered it. In the past year I have had 4 chest infections, the first was my first infection since diagnosis and, not realising and not seeing the build up, i left it quite late and needed 3 weeks off work, i had chest x rays etc and stronger and stronger antibiotics.
Anyway, I now spot the signs and go straight to the docs for antibiotics (Amoxycillin) before it progresses. I feel that my asthma isn't always well controlled and i'm concerned that the doc just keep sending me away with antibiotics, im also on Seretide 250 which I've built up to from Qvar50. I did ask him whether it was normal to keep getting infections and after he rambled on a bit he seemed to be saying that it depends on the person?? Who knows what that means!
So, I was wondering if anyone has the same issues, the same frequency of infections or more maybe?
