Doctor

A:   There is no relation between exercise and chest infection as you are thinking. Rather, exercise will increase the tolerance and resistance to infection. It could be because of viral Infection that you are getting recurrent mucus and respiratory problems. Consult your GP for correct treatment. Have a nice day.
