This is the 8th cold ive had this year.
 
Im just comming down with another cold. 8th colds in 8 months. it seems im never completly free of them. Im wondering if i should be worried or if this is within what is normal? The reason im even asking is because every time i get the cold they go down into my lungs and i get a cough. Since i have astma the cough always seem to stay longer then for other people.
Anyway should i be worried?

I think you should be concerned that your immune system doesn't seem to be working very well. Is there anything you can do to give it a boost?

Anyone with an autoimmune disorder like asthma will naturally have a harder time fighting off an infection. The number of infections you mention is worrying, have you ever been tested for Selective IgA deficiency?

It's the mildest form of inherited primary immunodeficiency:

Are you sure it's not allergy related? That will cause upper and lower respiratory symptoms, congestion, cough, runny nose, sore throat.
