Bronchitis Symptoms & Causes
Bronchitis is inflammation of the bronchial tubes, which carry air from the windpipe to the lungs. There are two types of bronchitis:
- Acute bronchitis – Caused by a bacterial or viral infection, acute bronchitis typically resolves within about 10 days and can usually be managed at home.
- Chronic bronchitis – The vast majority of chronic bronchitis cases are caused by smoking cigarettes, though they can also be caused by prolonged exposure to dust, toxic gases, and air pollution. Chronic bronchitis symptoms last for at least three months and recur regularly for over two years.
Bronchitis symptoms can include:
- Coughing (often a productive cough with mucus)
- Shortness of breath
- Chest discomfort
If your symptoms last longer than three weeks, keep you awake at night, or include wheezing, a high fever, or the production of bloody or discolored mucus, visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care as soon as possible. Otherwise, acute bronchitis generally doesn’t require medical intervention and symptoms can be eased by taking over-the-counter medication, resting, staying hydrated, and breathing in steam.
