?bronchitis: Call the dr. who treated you today and let them know your symptoms, as your asthma may be turning into a bronchitis requiring further treatment. Best wishes.

Asthmatic bronchitis: This may be asthmatic bronchitis rather than simple asthma, and antibiotics may be needed along with bronchodilator inhaler and steroid inhaler. A soothing cough suppressant syrup and possibly oral steroids may also be needed. Your physician will know whether a chest x-Ray is indicated.
