Acute bronchitis is very common among people with respiratory conditions. This type of bronchitis can occur in anyone, at any age. Acute bronchitis usually accompanies flu or cold and in most cases it doesn’t need medical treatment. When acute bronchitis is caused by viruses, the illness can clear on itself within a few days. However, more serious forms of acute bronchitis may require specific medical treatment.
Acute bronchitis refers to inflammation of the bronchial mucosal membranes, triggered by various external irritant or infectious agents. Due to prolonged exposure to irritants, pollutants or due to infection with viruses or bacteria, the bronchial region becomes inflamed, resulting in overproduction and expectoration of mucus.
Most symptoms of acute bronchitis are outwardly visible. The disease generates symptoms such as mucus-producing cough, chest pain and discomfort (intensifying with deep breaths), wheezing, difficult, shallow and accelerated breathing. Sometimes, these manifestations of acute bronchitis can be accompanied by mild or moderate fever.
Most acute bronchitis is usually caused by a viral infection and can be spread through person-to-person contact either directly or indirectly. This means that if you are a caregiver of someone who has bronchitis, you are at risk of contracting the illness yourself.
When you catch a cold or the flu and your respiratory system becomes ill, this is the starting point for acute bronchitis. The infection then travels into your airways, through your throat. A good thing is that acute bronchitis does not last as long as pneumonia does. Another thing for you to know is that acute bronchitis is usually caused by some viruses, but you can get this disease because of a bacteria as well.
Antibiotics can also be prescribed to you by your doctor, but only if the case of acute bronchitis that you have is caused by a bacteria. If you are given such a treatment involving antibiotics, make sure that you take them exactly as the doctor prescribed them, if you want to kill the bacteria.
If your bronchial tubes thicken, you are now blessed with acute bronchitis. Smokers often get this disease. I am sure you have heard a smoker constantly clearing their throats or hacking away for no apparent reason. It is a good possibility that they have acute bronchitis.
Gingseng ‘s effectiveness in improving parameters of erectile function such as duration and rigidity of erection have been demonstrated in many clinical studies. Well documented adverse effects of ginseng include dermatitis and gastrointestinal disturbances. Gingseng products are therefore contraindicated in patients with acute bronchitis and inflammatory disease.
Viral and bacterial infections normally cause acute bronchitis which is normally a relatively mild inflammation. Sometimes irritation from environmental fumes such as tobacco smoke, acid and solvent fumes can also cause acute bronchitis. Symptoms normally happen in the winter months and follow on from a cold.
While acute bronchitis usually clears on itself within a few days, chronic bronchitis can last for months. Chronic bronchitis is an infectious disease and needs ongoing medical treatment with antibiotics. If the medical treatment is prematurely interrupted, the illness reoccurs and can lead to complications.
In some viral forms of acute bronchitis, medical treatment isn’t required at all, as the illness clears on itself in a few weeks. Even if the illness is caused by bacteria, bronchitis treatments with antibiotics can cause a lot of harm to the organism if they are administered continuously.
