The skilled practitioners at PhysicianOne Urgent Care’s Ridgefield, Connecticut, office have extensive experience treating bronchitis and other illnesses. When you come to us for treatment, we will speak with you about your symptoms and medical history, perform a physical examination, and prescribe a course of treatment that’s suited to your needs.
What Are the Symptoms of Bronchitis?
Bronchitis can cause you to experience the following symptoms:
- Coughing (often with increased mucus production)
- Chest discomfort
- Shortness of breath
Symptoms like these can often be treated at home by resting, staying hydrated, taking over-the-counter medication, and breathing in steam from a shower or a bowl of warm water. However, if you’re experiencing any of the following, you should consult with a medical provider:
- A fever above 100.4° Fahrenheit
- Wheezing or shortness of breath
- Bloody or discolored mucus
- Symptoms that last at least three weeks or keep you awake at night
The Convenient Choice for Bronchitis Treatment
If you need professional treatment for bronchitis and your primary care provider doesn’t have any upcoming availability, you don’t want to wait weeks or even months for an appointment. Not only are bronchitis symptoms unpleasant to live with, but bronchitis can sometimes progress into pneumonia if left untreated.
