Can viral hemorrhagic fevers be cured?

By yourself...

Immune_system
In many cases, we don't have medication to kill the viruses that can cause hemorrhagic fevers. Anecdotally, people have used IV-IG, but in general, your immune system has to do the brunt of the work. As physicians, we can pretty much help with supportive management only.

Are the symptoms of viral hemorrhagic fevers bad?

Yes

Specific symptoms vary by the type of VHF, but symptoms often include fever, fatigue, muscle aches, and exhaustion. Patients with severe cases of VHF often show signs of bleeding under the skin, in internal organs, or from body orifices like the mouth, eyes, or ears. Severe cases also cause any organ to fail, with shock, coma, and death

Bronchitis

Open-uri20121123-14710-168buzy
May be bacterial or viral. Robitussin dM will relieve cough. I would generally recommend seeing a doctor and if bacterial antibiotics.This does not mean an otherwise healthy individual cannot heal. I can generally do it faster.
