Maybe bronchitis: It is not uncommon to contract a viral illness then have respiratory inflammation that causes bronchitis. These are usually not bacterial infections. However, if your symptoms are not improving and you have risk factors like smoking history or copd then you have a higher risk of bacterial infections. If you started your antibiotic (zpak) then complete the course. If you not improving see doc.
