You probably know many of the symptoms of a cold: sneezing, sore throat, a stuffy nose, and coughing. Do you know the difference between the flu vs. a cold?...
I've been to the doctor many times over the past 3 years and all he does is prescribe more antibiotic's.

It seems like its getting worse, even if I catch a cold it turns into a sinus infection, then a very high fever, and eventually goes into my lungs; and continues to get worse until i take antibiotics.

I eat and live healthy, I do smoke though 1/2 a pack a day; tried to quit a few times already.

Thanks for any help.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Chronic sinus infections and recurrent ones should be evaluated for any anatomical causes like deviated nasal septa or allergic rhinitis . Please visit an otolaryngologist and let them have a look.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
