Hello, my name is***** and I am an internist/ geriatrician. You may have acute bronchitis. Your doctor was hesitant to prescribe antibiotics because most cases of acute bronchitis are caused by a virus so antibiotics are not helpful. Are you having any fever/ chills? Do you feel like your symptoms have worsened compared now compared to 3 days or 5 days ago?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
