can allergies cause chronic respiratory infections?
I need some help here. I have re-occuring upper respiratory infections. I'm on Augmentin at least once a month. It's not working anymore. I just don't understand how this bug can keep coming back. My question to everyone is, "Can underlying allergies keep triggering re-occurrant bacterial growth?" I don't have allergy symptoms like runny nose, itchy eyes, etc. However, I know I have allergic reactions to common household items like dust, molds, mites, etc. Should I be seeing an allergist? I need the infections to stop!
