I am Mysticdoc, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to help you with your concerns.
Do you have any phlegm at all?
yes, usually a lot, sometimes none, mostly I have very strong sore throat and cough
Do you feel any swollen glands around the neck?
any significant shortness of breath?
this can still be viral bronchitis.
The symptoms may persist sometimes longer.
Rest, fluids and tylenol will help.
how long could this last?
And plenty of vitamin C like orange juice, lemonade etc.
Now a steroid inhaler can be tried to reduce the discomfort.
If these symptoms do not improve by next week, then another clinical evaluation is required.
Bacterial infection should be suspected if symptoms persist after 2 weeks,.
also, this didn't pass to my wife, not very contageious
that is also reassuring.
how long does bronchitis last?
if I have it?
can be 2-3 weeks
