Hi there, I have had asthma since I was three years old and my biggest problem is chest infections.
These happen in winter mainly, seasonally, and I'd say on a bad year I can have up to 5 or 6 chest infections/upper respiratory infections a year, though these have worsened in recent years. It normally takes Co-amoxicillin and steroids to cure them. I've had a chest X ray which brought nothing up and am waiting to have a spirometry. I manage my asthma on a daily basis with Seretide, Ventolin and Montelukast.
I graduated in the summer and am now working full time so it is now having a bigger effect on my day-to-day life. I also find it has a major effect on my mood and makes me depressed.
I wondered if anyone has had a similar problem or has any slightly more unusual cures to help me fix/prevent my chest infections.
