I have suffered with asthma for 20 years now, but about 4 years ago I started to develop regular chest infections. At first they were once in 8 weeks, and now I am lucky if a get a week after a course of antibiotics ends before I have another one. I am really worried, because I know what happens in you take too many antibiotics. I also had a broncoscopy about 6 weeks ago, which said I had strep aureus. I have to take 2000 mls per day of penecillan for 2 weeks. But that is all they found. I just don't know what to do. I have never smoked, I don't drink, so why do I keep having them infections? I hoped by joining this group I might be able to get some answers, or at the very least find people who are going through the same as I am, and then we could support each other.
