I had bronchitis, a rash, then a stomach virus, and now another rash only on my chest neck and face. Is this a post viral rash or something new?
Acute Urticaria/Hive: Acute urticaria (hives) is common, affecting 20% of the population. Acute hives resolve within 6 weeks (most patients fit into this category). Hives can become chronic if last more than 6 weeks. Common viral/bacterial infections can trigger an outbreak like bronchitis. Medications, foods, and stings can also cause acute hives but have the potential to lead to more serious complications.
15 mo old son recently had bronchitis the cough & fever stopped almost a week ago. He is coughing again with a low fever & a small rash on his face?
Recheck: He should be rechecked. Either he didn't get completely better or he is having a recurrent episode. Is he exposed to infections or does he attend child care? Is there a family history of asthma? Make sure his immunizations are current. All the best.
I'm allergic to penicillins (angioedema, hives and rash), but what if I'm sick (bronchitis, infection)? Is it possible to be treated without penicilli
Yes: There are many alternatives to penicillin for most infections.
What is a viral rash & how do I get rid of one? Causing red itchy bumps in random places that come & go. Doc said side effect of post-viral bronchitis
Antihistamines: Good morning, viral rashes could vary in nature from macules and papules due to chicken pox and mononucleosis to hives, which can last for a long time. Red itchy bumps suggest hives. Viruses come to our body, enter the cells of different types and take over the management of the affected cells just like a new manager. Our immune system reacts by antibodies to reject them, and will eliminate them.

Recheck: 3 weeks is simply too long and the rash is questionable- may be due to illness or medication. Have her rechecked.

My husband was diagnosed with bronchitis last week. Was given a zpac and meds for a cough. He seems to b getting worse again. Any advice?
See the doctor: If the symptoms are getting worse and he has been on the antibiotic for at least a week, he may have an infection that is resistant to that antibiotic. The other possibility is that he has a viral infection and did not need an antibiotic in the first place either way, he should followup with his physician to determine if he needs a different treatment.
Acute bronchitis: Acute bronchitis ("acute" here refers to new onset, self-limited) tends to be viral including cold viruses, but, more seriously, also influenza.Symptoms can persist once the virus has passed, therefore contagious depending on stage. Whooping cough is a contagious bacterial bronchitis, sometimes serious, making a comeback due to the unfortunate decision of some not to vaccinate their children.
Acute bronchitis.: Acute bronchitis is a viral infection heralded by a cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills, sweats, and perhaps some diffuse chest discomfort that increases with inspiration. Chest X-Ray may not always show acute bronchitis, so it's mainly a clinical diagnosis.See 1 more doctor answer

Not specifically: There is not a vaccine specifically made to protect against bronchitis, which is an infection of the larger airways in the lungs. The pneumococcal vaccines protect against pneumococcal bacterial infections (pneumonia, ear infections, sinus infections, blood sepsis, meningitis). Pneumonia is an infection farther down in the lungs, beyond the larger airways involved in bronchitis.See 1 more doctor answer
