In brief: For severe asthma
Azithromycin has been shown not only to kill atypical bacteria which makes asthma worse, but also reduce inflammation.
Small studies which examine the effect of Azithromycin on improving asthma are conflicting. Therefore, the best use of Azithromycin is for severe asthma patients who aren't controlled on standard asthma therapies on a trial basis.

In brief: Some Research
There has been some research that has shown a link between late onset(after puberty) of asthma and certain bacterial infections.
The best advise would be to get checked out by an allergist to see if this could possible be the case. Their research showed improvement with 6 weeks of antibiotics in a small group of patients.
