I have bronchiectasis and asthma and to be honest don't have very frequent infections but of late I've had 2 chest infections and treated with 7 days of antibiotics on both occasions. The chest infections have gone only to reappear a week or so later.
I've been away last week and on my return feel flu.like symptoms with thick yellow sputum and have a feeling that I'm having yet another chest infection!
Its a pain being ill so frequently as work full time doing nights and also have my own business and am plodding on through despite feeling so unwell.
What would anyone recommend....should I do a sputum? Should I ask for a.different antibiotic? Should I. have taken steroids?
Any advice would be helpful...my sats are fine and I don't record peak flows as don't own a meter.
