Bronchitis is a very common illness, especially among children. Bronchitis is the inflammation of the bronchial tubes.
The most common of all bronchitis symptoms is cough. The second bronchitis symptom is the production of more mucus than normal.
Types of Bronchitis
There are several bronchitis types, but only two of them are common: acute bronchitis and chronic bronchitis. The second bronchitis type affects mostly adults.
Acute bronchitis is more common than the chronic one. This is when the mucous membrane is inflated.
Causes of Bronchitis
Acute bronchitis is caused either by a bacteria or by a virus.
Another acute bronchitis cause is allergens or chemical agents. Smoking or working, living in places that are full in chemical can increase the risk of acute bronchitis. In children, the most common cause of bronchitis is a virus, unlike in adults when bacteria can also cause bronchitis.
Bacteria can be a cause for bronchitis in children, but only for those that are over six years old. Furthermore, in children acute bronchitis is a mild illness and does not need any special treatment. In almost all cases, acute bronchitis is the result of cold or an infection of the respiratory system, mainly the upper part.
Acute bronchitis can also develop in children and people that suffer from allergies or sinusitis. Enlarged tonsils can also be another condition that can be the cause of bronchitis development.
Symptoms of Bronchitis
There are many symptoms for acute bronchitis, but only a few are the most common bronchitis symptoms. In children, especially, the bronchitis symptoms may be experienced in different manners.
The bronchitis symptoms include:
- the first bronchitis symptom is a runny nose, followed by discomfort that is felt in the entire body;
- chills and a mild fever are also some of the first acute bronchitis symptoms;

After all these bronchitis symptoms, then cough without mucus is the next symptom for bronchitis. As the illness, acute bronchitis, develops a cough filled with mucus will appear. Smaller children may also experience vomiting when suffering from acute bronchitis. In almost all bronchitis cases, the symptoms last about two weeks.
