Acute Bronchitis

Application Details :

The bronchial tubes, which are the airways used to transport air to and from the lungs, become temporarily inflamed in acute bronchitis. Viral infections, most frequently the same viruses that cause the common cold and the flu, are a major contributor to this illness. It may also be caused by irritations such smoke, dust, gases, or pollution. The common symptoms of acute bronchitis include coughing up clear or yellow mucus often, wheezing, chest pain or soreness, a low-grade fever, and a tightness in the chest. Even though acute bronchitis typically resolves on its own and within a few weeks, it can still be very painful and disruptive to everyday life. The main goals of treatment are symptom management and pain relief. The symptoms may be lessened by getting enough rest, maintaining hydration, using a humidifier, and taking over-the-counter cough and cold drugs. However, unless a bacterial infection or underlying chronic lung disease is present, antibiotics are typically not advised. People who experience frequent or severe symptoms, as well as those who have underlying medical issues, should contact a doctor to rule out more serious problems and obtain the proper therapy. Acute bronchitis can be prevented by adopting preventative steps such quitting smoking, avoiding triggers, and maintaining excellent hygiene.
