Are there any specific risk factors for developing an ear, nose, and throat infection?

Anyone can develop this affection, but the people who are most likely to develop it are those who have a weaker immune system. However, people susceptible to these infections are those with allergic disorders, dental problems including infants with teething problems, and a habit of smoking and consuming large amounts of alcohol are more likely to develop this affection.
