Acute Bronchitis Treatment

Acute bronchitis can be caused by either a viral or bacterial illness. The viral illness may require a cough suppressant, antihistamines, decongestants, steroids, or breathing treatments. A bacterial infection may require all of the above medications in addition to an antibiotic regimen specifically selected to target the bacteria causing the condition. Typical treatment will vary, but will usually last 5-7 days. 

Is Acute Bronchitis Contagious?

Yes, acute bronchitis is contagious! During the illness, the patient is considered contagious and may need to stay home from work or school for several days. Over the counter cough medicines and decongestants may help, but if these medicines are ineffective after 3 days, more powerful prescribed medications are often necessary.
