Advice Wanted: Immune System Edition

Bleeeeerrrrgggghhhhhhhhhhh. Not only is that the sound I make when clearing my throat, it is an accurate onomatopoeic representation of how I feel.

This is probably my 4th cold since September and I’m over it except not literally. I have not been this sick, this frequently, since I was a student teacher and elementary school sub. I teach 6th grade in a middle school, so you think the kids have slightly better hygiene. Anyway, I’m at my wits end. I exercise regularly and eat citrus fruit every day, so what else should I be doing? My husband is actually immunocompromised and he never gets ill. I’m running out of sick days. Any and all advice is welcome.
