The body’s bronchial tubes carry air to and from the lungs. When the lining of these tubes become inflamed, bronchitis has developed.

There are two types: acute and chronic. Acute is the more common version, stemming from colds or other respiratory infections. Chronic, on the other hand, is more serious. This version sees a constant irritation or inflammation of the bronchial tube lining, which is often due to smoking.

What are the symptoms?

Those with bronchitis often cough up a thick, occasionally discolored mucus. You’ll also experience tightness in the chest, shortness in breath, and body fatigue.

What are the treatments?

Acute bronchitis may improve within several days or weeks.* Your cough may linger beyond that, but there are no lasting effects.*

Chronic bouts will require professional medical attention.*

* Individual results may vary.
