What is bronchitis?
Bronchitis occurs when the linings of the bronchial tubes become inflamed. The most common type of bronchitis is acute bronchitis, which is caused by a virus and may develop from a cold. The most common symptoms of this condition are coughing, fatigue, fever, and chest discomfort.
Do I need bronchitis treatment?
Acute bronchitis is a viral infection that cannot be cured with medicine. The virus must simply run its course, which may take a few days or a few weeks. Many cases of bronchitis will resolve on their own with plenty of rest, water, and a nutrient-rich diet, but you should visit Lifeline Urgent Care for additional treatment if:
Your cough does not improve after 10 days or lingers for more than 20 days
Your chest hurts when you cough, or you cough up blood
You have a barking cough that makes it difficult to speak
Your cough seems to get worse and is accompanied by discolored mucus
You have trouble sleeping
