Symptoms, remedies, treatments and care for Bronchitis


Bronchitis is the inflammation, swelling or infection of the bronchial tubes, the tubes that carry air between the nose and the lungs. Symptoms of bronchitis include persistent cough with mucus, difficulty breathing, chest tightness, chest pain, wheezing, nasal congestion, fatigue, muscle aches and fever.

Bronchitis can be caused by a virus, bacteria, or particles that irritate the bronchial tubes. It usually occurs after you’ve already experienced symptoms of the common cold.

Bronchitis can be acute or chronic. Most cases of acute bronchitis will clear up without medical treatment. Chronic bronchitis is more severe and difficult to treat.
