Two types...: There are 2 types of bronchitis: acute and chronic. Acute bronchitis is usually due to an infection in the airways whereas chronic bronchitis is a form of COPD and is typically from smoking. The treatments are different as well so see your doctor if you think you may have a form of bronchitis.
