Sounds like bettter: Acute bronchitis can be viral or bacterial. If thought to be bacterial and antibiotics are given, the mucus will change from green to yellow/white. Chest pt (someone pounds on your back gently to not hurt you but repeatedly& firmly) can help break up the remaining mucus in addition to the mist of a hot shower & guaifenesin.
