What can you use for bronchitis?

Bronchitis is a cold-related respiratory condition that can be quite miserable to experience. If you are coughing like crazy and feeling short of breath, it’s time to take action! But with so many remedies out there, which one should you use? This article will give you the lowdown on dozens of treatment options so that you can choose the best one(s) for your situation.

The Basics: What Exactly Is Bronchitis?

To understand what works best against bronchitis, we need to know exactly what it is. Essentially, bronchitis involves inflammation (ouch) of the lining in your bronchoscope tubes (which carry air from your windpipe into the lungs).

There are two types – acute and chronic. Acute bronchitis usually comes on fast after an upper respiratory infection hits (think a nasty flu), while chronic bronchitis takes place over several years due to factors like smoking or exposure to pollution.

No matter what type of bronchitis you have going on, some typical symptoms include:

  • A persistent cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Wheezing
  • Chest discomfort (not necessarily pain)
  • Fatigue

Now onto treatments!
