I'm honestly confused. In the last year or so I've learned so much about my asthma (has had it since 2yo, now I'm 24). Something just bugs me in all this. If my immune system is hyperactive and reacts to allergens too much so my asthma is activated, then why do I have a cold or a chest infection every single month? Isn't my immune system supposed to act hyper again and prevent the colds and the infections?
Pardon my silly question, I am no medic, it just seems too odd for me.
