Bronchitis Treatment at Urgent Care & Walk-In Clinic in Phoenixville, PA

What is Bronchitis?

Bronchitis is a respiratory disease in which the mucus membrane in the lungs’ bronchial passages becomes inflamed and irritated. As the irritated membrane swells and grows thicker, it narrows or shuts off the tiny airways in the lungs, resulting in coughing spells that may be accompanied by phlegm, wheezing and/or breathlessness. Bronchitis has 2 variations: acute (lasting up to three weeks) and chronic (lasting at least 3 months of the year for two years in a row).

Bronchitis Symptoms often include:

  • Hacking and persistent cough that lasts for 5 days or more
  • Clear, yellow, white, or green phlegm
  • Chest soreness
  • Lack of energy
  • Wheezing

Bronchitis Treatment may include:

Although bronchitis is almost always caused by respiratory viruses and does not require antibiotics, the coughing and wheezing from bronchitis may be treated with a breathing treatment.
