Infections are common, but some people, both children and adults, may experience infections too frequently or severely. Frequent sinus infections, pneumonias or other unusual infection could be sign of a low immune system.
We will perform a detailed history to help determine the cause of your frequent infections. Often, sinus infections are due to allergies and chest infections may be due to asthma. We can perform laboratory testing to evaluate the function of your immune system. If an antibody deficiency is discovered, we can discuss if immunoglobulin (such as IVIG) infusions may be helpful to help prevent infections.
