What Is Bronchitis?
When we breathe in air, it enters through our mouth or nose and travels down the back of the throat, through the larynx, and through our trachea (windpipe). From there, the air moves down into our bronchial tubes, which are located in the lungs, to supply air to the lungs. A viral infection can cause the bronchial tubes to become inflamed and produce excess mucus, leading to the common symptoms of bronchitis, such as:
- Congestion and sneezing
- Body aches
- Fever and chills
- Chest discomfort
Over-the-counter medication, such as cough suppressants, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen, can help manage your symptoms as your body fights the infection. But sometimes, these medications aren’t enough. That’s when you should come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for prompt bronchitis treatment.
How Bronchitis Is Treated
When you visit our urgent care center, we will learn about your symptoms, discuss your medical history, and possibly conduct a few tests. We may recommend a sputum test to discern if you’re dealing with a bacterial infection (in which case, antibiotic medication may be prescribed) and/or a COVID-19 test.
At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we’ve got you. Visit our facility in Newtown today to receive the bronchitis treatment you need. You can also schedule a Virtual Visit with our team to receive care from the comfort of home.
