I've had bronchitis starting around Dec 9th. I feel fine now, however, I still have an occasional cough which produces little mucos but it sounds dry. My throat is dry and hoarsde I guess from the Q-var that the dr told me to use until the cough goes away and my dr said the cough could go on for a few more weeks. I don't have asthma,but I get bronchitis every year at this time.
I saw an allergist last year. He said I don't have asthma, I took a breathing test, but a possible sinus post nasal drip year long and prescribed me a steriod inhaler for a few weeks which helped.
My question: why do I get bronchitis? Is it the type of virus or am I prone to it? How can I avoid this? It really is miserable.
P.S. Dr. Choi, I heard you on KGO. Very informative information, Thanks!
