It depends: It depends on what caused your bronchitis. If it is an infection with a virus you may just need to give it time. Bacterial bronchitis may warrant treatment with an antibiotic. Chronic bronchitis can be treated with inhaled bronchodilators. If you are a smoker then quit! if you work around a lot of dust/fumes/chemicals then wear a mask or find a new job.
