CHEST COLDS - WHAT ARE THEY AND WHY DO I HAVE ONE

WHAT ARE THEY AND WHY DO I HAVE ONE... Again.

I just realized I said "But if you mean having asthma will mean you're more likely to get pneumonia, no. 


" But if you mean having asthma will mean you're more likely to get pneumonia, no. Some more information: her father has asthma, I have ended up diagnosed with asthma after a few battles with bronchitis. And having asthma can lead her to having pneumonia easier. Could this be a factor in why she gets chest colds? I've always wondered if all chest illnesses are in some way related because they're so similar. I've noticed people who get the flu often end up with some kind of chest problem too. I however suffer from bronchitis atleast once a year, often after a cold. Well there are some respiratory diseases that are likely to be carried over, as well as susceptibility. So you don't think it's likely that because me and her father have had respiratory problems she's more likely to? Pneumonia is an infection whereas asthma is a disease where the trachea is more reactive to stimuli; asthma can be hereditary.

It starts with a small cough, and after she gets congested it just settles in her chest.

My daughter is sick, she gets pneumonia very easily. I think if I have a better understanding it will be easier to prevent problems in the future for the both of us. So they're all respiratory diseases, but they aren't acquired the same way.

I mean, some people are more susceptible to respiratory infections, yes.
