Bronchitis, or a chest cold, is an inflammation of the bronchial tubes, which are the airways that carry air to your lungs. The condition can cause coughing with mucus which can be discolored, wheezing, and shortness of breath. It can be either acute, which develops from a cold, to chronic, which is often due to smoking. Acute bronchitis can be cured at home with a little TLC, as it usually improves within a week to ten days. Also despite clear evidence that antibiotics are ineffective for the treatment of acute bronchitis, studies have shown that the rate of prescribing them for the condition was still at 71 percent. It is believed, however, that the best course of action is home treatment of the symptoms caused by bronchitis, letting the infection just run its course.
