Prompt Treatment for Bronchitis Symptoms in Waterbury, CT

Do you have a cough that just won’t go away? Are you continuously coughing up mucus? If so, you may have a common condition called bronchitis. This illness occurs when the lining of your bronchial tubes—which carry air to and from your lungs—becomes inflamed. It often develops by way of a cold or another respiratory infection. As it’s typically a viral infection, bronchitis often clears up on its own within 10 days, although the cough may linger around for a bit longer. However, you may want to see a doctor for bronchitis treatment if your cough:

  • Produces blood or discolored mucus
  • Is accompanied by a fever higher than 100.4°F
  • Is preventing you from sleeping
  • Hasn’t gone away after three weeks
  • Makes you wheeze or have shortness of breath

PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Waterbury, Connecticut, is the facility to visit for bronchitis treatment every day of the year. Our highly trained practitioners will take careful note of your symptoms and may even recommend a chest X-ray, sputum test, or pulmonary function test to determine if your symptoms are due to another condition, such as pneumonia, asthma, or allergies. We can complete these diagnostic tests right in our facility to provide the quick answers you deserve.

If it turns out that your bronchitis symptoms do not have an underlying cause, your practitioner will likely recommend over-the-counter cough medication to help you sleep better at night while you wait for the infection to clear up.

"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."
