Bronchitis Treatment

Bronchitis Treatment

Bronchitis happens when the bronchial tubes are inflamed in your lungs. The lining of the tubes forms mucus, which makes the coughs even worse. There are 2 different types of bronchitis: acute bronchitis and chronic bronchitis.

Acute bronchitis usually arises after a cold, and short-term. In contrast, chronic bronchitis lasts much longer and can cause serious complications to your health.

Acute bronchitis can usually go away after a few days with enough rest. However, sometimes medicines are required. As soon as you show some symptoms, it’s important to seek professional diagnosis and treatment in order to prevent serious or long-term complications.

AFC Urgent Care Swampscott is open 7 days a week during extended hours. We provide quality bronchitis treatment, administered by our well-trained and qualified providers. Feel free to call us at (781) 691-9366.

Bronchitis Overview

Did you know that nearly 5 percent of all U.S adults report having a cause of acute bronchitis? The Mayo Clinic explains that common seasonal illnesses like influenza are primarily responsible for millions of bronchitis cases each year. The good news for patients though is that AFC Urgent Care Swampscott is able to provide immediate bronchitis treatment via our Urgent Care Center and Walk-in clinic!

Bronchitis is an infectious disease that infects a patient’s lungs and causes a variety of respiratory symptoms such as congestion, mucus, and primarily cough. While most patients can wait to get bronchitis treatment ASAP, it helps to visit an urgent care provider in order to get symptom treatment fast.

If you have any additional questions about bronchitis treatment, seasonal illness care, or other medical needs, please call us directly at (781) 691-9366. You can also visit us directly at our clinic, which is conveniently located at 450 Paradise Rd in Swampscott, MA!

Bronchitis symptoms treatable at urgent care

Bronchitis is a medical condition that traditionally results in frequent cough with patients that have acute cases, according to the Centers for Disease Control. In rare cases, bronchitis may result in a chronic case that exacerbates complex healthcare conditions like Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD). However, the majority of bronchitis cases in the U.S are acute, which result of the following types of diseases:

  1. Common cold
  2. Influenza (the flu)
  3. Upper Respiratory Infections
  4. Viral Infections

AFC Urgent Care Swampscott can treat patients that have bronchitis symptoms and complications that last longer than 3-5 days. Patients can simply visit our clinic whenever they have time to get treatment for the following bronchitis symptoms:

  • Coughing with or without mucus
  • Soreness in the chest
  • Feeling tired (fatigue)
  • Mild headache
  • Mild body aches
  • Sore throat

Symptoms that continue to linger past a few days require medical attention from an urgent care provider. If you have a significant build up of mucus, consistent difficulty breathing, or heightened fever then make sure you visit the AFC Swampscott team right away!
