Is My Immune System Weak
Not really: Asthma involves excess inflammation that irritates the airways, producing mucus and bronchospasm. More on the lines of an "over active" immune system.

I do not react well to foreign materials and my immune system is weak. Shall I have a dental post placed in a root canal treated bicuspid?
