How Long Does Asthmatic Bronchitis Last
Bronchitis = asthma: Adults who smoked develop chronic bronchitis. In children acute bronchitis is usually coughing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, wheezing with a viral respiratory infection (vri). In this case the lungs are over reacting to the irritation of the vri and over reactive/hper-reactive airways is the hallmark of asthma. Children who repeatedly get "bronchitis" probably have a mild form of asthma.See 1 more doctor answer

I was diagnosed with asthmatic bronchitis and was wondering how long does it last, also is it normal to cough up blood with it, had this for 4 weeks?
Blood is not normal: If you have an underlying diagnosis of asthma it can sometimes flare and be called bronchitis - which is inflammation of the airways. It can last from 7-14 days depending on which medications you are taking to relieve the symptoms and how severe your symptoms are. It is not common to be coughing up blood. I would definitely be evaluated by a physician if this continues or worsens.

Asthma: Bronchial Asthma, asthmatic bronchitis and asthma are the same.

Viral infection: Viral respiratory tract infections are contagious as they are spread by respiratory droplets. However, to have asthma symptoms that is dependent upon the child having asthma. Thus, if the child has asthma, and then is exposed to a viral infection, he will have symptoms of asthmatic bronchitis.
Yes: If asthma is what you mean by asthmatic bronchitis. Asthma like allergic rhinitis & eczema has a strong genetic component. It's common to see several generations of patients from 1 family. But perhaps you mean that when your mother smokes she gets bronchitis & now your son is coughing. You can't change genetics but you can environment. 2nd-hand smoke is a reason why grandma & grandson are coughing.See 1 more doctor answer
What's the diff between asthma and cough-variant asthma, or asthmatic bronchitis? Never had asthma, but always get bronchitis with every cold now.
Intensity: Asthma is a variable condition where the "average" patient experiences periods of wheezing brought on by infection or other personal triggering events. In cough variant asthma it is mild enough they may never know, but the cough stops with asthma meds.A feature is sibs or parents with asthma. Asthmatic bronchitis is more a label for infection triggered wheezing. One with CVA would be more prone to it

To get better!: A typical visit to the pulmonologist should start with a thorough history of your respiratory symptoms. Next would be an examination, paying particular attention to the lungs and your breathing. That would likely be followed by pulmonary function (or breathing) testing to evaluate the lungs better. They may also want to get a chest x-ray. This will all help to determine what is the best therapy.
