Comprehensive treatment for chronic bronchitis

When the main airways of your lungs, your bronchi, are swollen or inflamed, it’s called bronchitis. Bronchitis can be chronic or acute, with chronic bronchitis lasting at least three months.

Chronic bronchitis symptoms include wheezing, coughing (with mucus) and chest tightness or discomfort. Part of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the primary cause of chronic bronchitis is smoking. It is also caused by breathing in dust, allergens, chemicals or other substances that irritate the lungs.
