Bronchitis is an acute inflammation of the air passages within the lungs. Symptoms of bronchitis include Cough that produces mucus, Soreness in the chest, Fatigue, Mild headache, Mild body aches, Low-grade fever, Watery eyes and Sore throat. Most cases of bronchitis are short-term and require nothing more than treatment of symptoms to relieve discomfort. Acetaminophen , aspirin, ibuprofen , or naproxen will help with fever and muscle aches. Drinking fluids is very important because fever causes the body to lose fluid faster. Humidifier can help decrease bronchial irritation.
