Bronchitis occurs when the bronchial tubes, branch like structures within your lungs, become inflamed and coated with mucous. It usually presents with coughing and a sore throat, but the cough often contains mucous, which is known as a wet cough. Despite how unpleasant this sounds, finding relief from bronchitis needn’t be taxing on you, your schedule, or your wallet. That’s why Metro Urgent Care is here.
You could be suffering from bronchitis because of smoking habits or simply the unpleasant after-effects of a stubborn cold. There are two types of Bronchitis: acute bronchitis and chronic bronchitis. Whatever the case, we at Metro Urgent Care are here to help

Sometimes, bronchitis sticks around for weeks after you’ve recovered from a cold, causing irritation and discomfort. Bronchitis is usually a viral infection, like the common cold or the flu, so antibiotics will not be needed in your course of treatment. In this case, antibiotics can actually make bronchitis worse and more resistant.
That said, if your bronchitis is caused by a chronic health issue, such as smoking or workplace environment, lifestyle changes may be necessary additions to help treat your symptoms and help you live your best life.
