When to Seek Treatment for Bronchitis
Oftentimes, bronchitis can be treated at home (some common at-home remedies include taking over-the-counter medication, breathing in steam, resting, and staying hydrated). However, if your bronchitis symptoms are especially severe, have lasted at least three weeks, or include any of the following, you should seek professional care:
- A fever above 100.4° Fahrenheit
- Shortness of breath
- Bloody or discolored mucus
Treatment will vary depending on the cause of your bronchitis. Acute bronchitis usually stems from a viral infection, such as a cold or the flu. When this is the case, treatment may involve taking a cough suppressant or using an inhaler. However, if we determine that your bronchitis developed from a bacterial infection, we may prescribe antibiotics.
