What causes recurrent pneumonia?
Get done annual influenza vaccine and five yearly pneumococcal vaccine.
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Recurrent pneumonia suggests poor lung immunity.
This can be due to either poor lung defense or due to auto immune disease you are having.
It is advisable to take adult respiratory vaccines like influenza and pneumococcal.
Influenza vaccine prevents recurrent viral infection and it should be taken annually (once a year).
Pneumococcal vaccine prevents bacterial pneumonia and it should be taken five yearly.
So consult pulmonologist and discuss about these vaccines.
Please let me know
1. Do you smoke?
2. Which drugs you are taking for auto immune disease?
Please reply me answers of above asked questions, so that I can guide you better. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
