Bronchitis

Cough.
The worst thing you can do when you have Bronchitis.

When you're down with bronchitis try suppressing your cough for it can further irritate the already inflamed trachea and bronchi (air passages). This inflamation is brought about by viruses, bacteria and mycoplasma (the same ones that give you a cold) Common among people exposed to dusty surroundings. Especially women and those over the age of 40.

Signs and symptoms ::
Fever. Chest aches. Shortness of breath. Flecks of blood in sputum. Headache and sore muscles (not always).

Treatment ::
Steam inhalations, bronchodilators and expectorants will usually releive the symptoms. In extreme cases chemotherapy may be needed (depending on the sensitivity of the infecting organisms). Have plenty of fluids, diluted vegetables juices and soups. Stay in a warm, humid environment.

Whenever you have an attack of bronchitis, check with your doctor for the underlying cause.
