M.D. visit: Frequent lung infections/non specific inflammation may be related to a number of conditions. If there is a retained aspirated material, reflux and aspiration into the lung, TB,immunodeficiency, these can be related to this occurrence. I would suggest that you have a chest radiograph, lung function testing and assessment for possible immunodeficiency with lab testing. Physician visit is indicated.
