    Cold or Flu always becomes bronchitis and sinus infections

    Sorry for the long post... but i am desperate at this time. I am 52 years old that had bad asthma when I was a child. I seemed I outgrow from my 20 to mid 30's. In my mid 30's I started getting frequent sinus infections. I have had 3 sinus surgeries and take advair, singulair, nasonex, astepro daily along with other medications. Also, in my mid 30's I started getting severe IBS. After many, many tests I eventually found a "cure" for that on the internet. The 'cure' is taking digestive enzymes after every meal.

    I have been on more antibiotic than I can count and any cold or flu always turns into sinus infection and bronchitis combination.

    My question... has anyone experience the below symptoms and if so what did they do to improve and prevent the same scenario moving forward?

    -a cold or flu turns into fever for 5 plus days.
    -cold or flu always turns into sinus infection and bronchitis which always required prednisone and long term antibiotics which get less effective and 80% of the time don't work.
    -severe coughing which requires quadrupling asthma medication.

    I am desperate and looking for any answers.

    Thank you for your time and any suggestions.
