Bronchitis No Fever
I was recently dx with bronchitis & pneumonia. Fever free for more than 24 hrs, but I still have a productive cough. Is it okay to go back to work?
Depends: There is No definitive correct answer here, but your Treating provider would be able to best answer that question. Depending on the time and onset of your symptoms, how many days treatment of antiBx you have had, etc all may play a role in a return to work date. If you work alone, you may be fine, but if you are around many others in a closed space, then a productive cough would be frowned upon. ...Read more

Is it normal for a 6 year old to sweat and cough, after being sick? My 6 year old was sick with bronchitis, bad fever cough, now that she is doing better, no fever, still coughing, and having cold sweats at night, is that normal should I worry?
Usually: Usually after a bout of pneumonia or bronchitis, the cough is the last symptom to disappear - occasionally taking weeks to resolve. As long as her cough is continuing to improve, then it most likely is ok. If her cough is worsening or if she is having any difficulty breathing, then you will want to contact her doctor right away. The cold sweats may or may not be concerning - is she still having fever at night and the sweats are when it breaks? If you are noticing a pattern to when she has these, you may want to take her temperature prior to the sweat to make sure she's still not having fever - that would be a reason to see her doctor right away. As long as her fever is gone and her cough is improving, i'd say you were on the right track. If you have any specific questions about her symptoms or treatment, give her doc a call. Good luck! ...Read more

I'm 7 days into cold that turned into bronchitis. No fever, have some energy still coughing up green mucous every now and then. Do I need antibiotics?
Bronchitis: A flu can last upto 7 days. The first few days are the worst with fevers, weakness and muscle aches. Coughing up green sputum doesn't mean you have a bacterial infection. If your getting better, then you don't need antibiotics unless your a high risk for further infection, like having diabetes, asthma, COPD. Keep hydrated, try coconut juice. If no better in 3-5 days, then you may need antibiotics. ...Read more

Lotta coffin: Yes, you can have what's called "bronchitis" without a fever, or much else but a cough. The cough can vary and also what you may spit-up. At your age if you DON'T have a fever or spitting up bad-tasting glarp, then it's a cough, variously called "bronchitis, " "viral syndrome, " or something else that sounds official. But if it's intense, frequent and annoying, see your doctor, it could be pertussis ...Read more

Musculoskeletal pain: Coughing persistently can result in musculoskeletal chest discomfort due to muscle strain, cartilage inflammation, bone bruise or even fracture. This pain will resolve once the cough resolves. Without fever or discolored sputum, the cough is unlikely to be due to infection.

Post nasal: The only one who can make a diagnosis of bronchitis is the one who examines you and listen to your lungs.

4 yrs ago I had really bad fever, bronchitis, sinus infection and my ESR was 110. 4 weeks later, I felt much better & retested it was slightly elevated 2 points but almost normal. Retest? I feel fine
ESR - sed rate: An 'elevated sedimentation rate' or ESR is a non-specific marker of inflammation. Several things can affect that lab result: age (older = higher), the blood count (anemia = higher), and inflammation among other things. Given that it's normalized, I would rest assured. Remember, lab tests only matter in the context of disease. If you feel 100% then I trust that. No need to retest at this time. ...Read more
