Constant infections: You may have a chronic condition e.g. Allergies that make you more suseptible to infections like sinusitis and bronchitis. You may have asthma. See an allergist. Take 5000 iu vitamin d3 daily until your blood test is optimal about 60-70. For secondary infection may need antibiotic.

Also rule out gastroesophageal reflux disease, and a CXR to rule out an underlying mass or fungal infection.
