In the cold months, cough is one of the usual symptoms of a common cold, also known as upper respiratory infection. Depending on how strong the immune system is, it can take three days to two weeks to recover from it. Sometimes, after the common cold, bronchitis is developed and it is a condition that can be quite stubborn.
Bronchitis is a condition which occurs when there is an infection in the lungs. The major airways of the lung – the bronchi, are inflamed and irritated. Most common types of bronchitis are acute or chronic, there are other types too. Although the symptoms of acute bronchitis, which is sometimes referred as chest cold, usually last for about 2 weeks, the cough might stay for up to two months.
Which Are the Most Common Symptoms and Signs of Bronchitis?
- Shortness of breath
- Production of mucus of different colors
- Fever and chills
- Chest discomfort
What Might Trigger Bronchitis?
As it was mentioned above, bronchitis could develop after a common cold. It could be caused by a virus or bacteria infection, it could be triggered by breathing in irritant particles or substances. Smoking can be a trigger too for some people however, it is not the main cause of bronchitis as non-smokers can suffer too. Toxic or polluted air environments should be avoided or protective gear must be used to protect the lungs. Sometimes, emotional stress can be a trigger too as it compromises the immune system.
