Could I Still Dance And Be Active When I Have A Minor Form Of Bronchitis
Bronchitis is an inflammation of the mucous membranes of the bronchi (airways that carry air from the trachea to the more distal parts of the lungs, or bronchioles).

Girlfriend has significantly recovered from bronchitis she has had for just over two weeks. It is just a minor cough now. Should I still be concerned?
Not likely: There is reasonable data the a residual cough from a bout of acute bronchitis can last up to 8 weeks in some persons, more typically it's on the order of 2-3 weeks. As long as that's the only symptoms and not persistent fevers, chills, sweats, blood in the cough, shortness of breath and/or chest pain. If other symptoms persist or have arisen, she should seek in person help. Best of luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have bronchitis, and i was wondering if i could still have sex with my boyfriend without passing it on?
It seems like I have a cold, but the symptoms are in my chest only. I don't have a cough and I'm not wheezing. Could I still have bronchitis?
Perhaps...: If you don't have a fever or severe body aches, or shortness of breath, then you can likely go to work. Drink plenty of fluids and cough/sneeze into your elbow.

Stay home and see your doctor if symptoms worsen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
