Bronchospasm...: As an episode of bronchitis resolves, you can develop bronchospasm which can account for at least some of your symptoms. Bronchodilator and steroid inhalers may be needed to help these symptoms resolve. It will likely take at least a few days for the hoarseness to resolve. See your doctor for a prescription for the inhalers.
