I keep getting the Flu :(

I had a very bad flu a few months ago and then i got it again three weeks ago and i got it again last sunday
Why do i keep getting sick?
It actually happens everytime i have been outside when it's very windy.....so is it the wind making me sick.....why is that?
Another thing is i have spent almost the last two years sneezing! I was worried that i may be allergic to my cat but then i remembered the sneezing and colds started a few months before i got him.

What is wrong with me?

There are more than one strain of flu. Chances are you have been getting different ones, or even just colds.

Sounds like you have an allergy to something. Maybe dust mites, or some food you are eating, or something you are wearing, or those around you are wearing. Maybe some chemicals. See if you can see an allergist.

Re: I keep getting the Flu :(

katyana pretty much said it ...and i can assure you it is not the wind wind will not give you the flu or a cold because they are viruses which you get from either breathing in droplets of someone elses "mist" who has a cold or the flu. or by touching a surface that the virus is on and then touching your nose or mouth.

get some vitamin c in ya and use hand sanitizer when touching common surfaces such as door knobs/ handles and wash you hand when you come into your home from being out around other people.
