Bronchitis

Bronchitis is the inflammation of the small tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs, which are called bronchi. The condition can occur in short bouts that last a few weeks and generally result from a viral infection, or it can be a chronic condition with longer-lasting effects.

Symptoms of Bronchitis

The most noticeable symptom is a productive (mucus-producing) cough that lasts for days or weeks. Other associated symptoms include:

  • Fatigue

  • Low-grade fever and chills

  • Chest pain

  • Shortness of breath


How long does bronchitis last?

While acute bronchitis often clears up within a few weeks without intervention, persistent, intense coughing or concerning fevers may prompt a visit to an urgent care clinic.
