Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between acute and chronic bronchitis?

Acute bronchitis is very common, while chronic bronchitis is a more serious condition. Chronic bronchitis is a constant irritation or inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes and happens more frequently in smokers. Duration of the cough in a chronic case can last upwards of 3 weeks, in many cases. So support and home remedies are key.
