Bronchitis Treatment From a Caring Team in Derby, CT

A father puts a blanket over his sick child who is laying on the couch.

Bronchitis occurs when the bronchial tubes (which carry air to and from the lungs) become inflamed, as a result of a viral infection. This inflammation causes the tubes to produce excess mucus, leading to coughing, chest discomfort, congestion, sneezing, and other cold symptoms. If you’re feeling under the weather and are concerned you have bronchitis, visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Derby, Connecticut. Our facility is staffed with experienced, friendly practitioners who will provide the compassionate treatment you need.

How Is Bronchitis Treated?

For most patients, bronchitis can be effectively treated at home. Over-the-counter medication to manage your cough, reduce your fever, break up mucus in your chest, and relieve your headache or body aches can help. Getting rest and drinking lots of fluid are also recommended.

If your bronchitis symptoms feel especially severe or aren’t improving after 10 days, then you may want to seek medical treatment. At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we offer both in-person and virtual options. If you’re not feeling up to a visit to our facility, you can schedule a telemedicine appointment, which we provide seven days per week. You’ll connect with one of our clinicians over a secure videoconferencing platform, and he or she will provide the treatment you need.

Some patients may need to come to our urgent care center for evaluation, such as if you need diagnostic testing. Your practitioner may recommend getting a sputum test to rule out a bacterial infection or a COVID-19 test to rule out COVID-19. If so, those are diagnostics we can take care of in our facility.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
