Yes and no

Urised will help the symptoms and rarely cure the problem. You probably need antibiotics. For more info see www.peedoc.com. @thepeedoc

i have an upper respiratory infection how long am i contagious ? doctor gave me an antibotic and prednisone do i need both ?

URI contagious

Prednisone
If you have a viral upper respiratory infection, two - three days. If you have a bacterial respiratory infection, which may follow the viral URI, generally this is not contagious. Bacterial infections generally follow the insult from the virus. Antibiotics will shorten the duration of a bacterial infection. Prednisone speeds up recovery quickest, but should be used with caution.

How long is acute bronchitis contagious for?

It is not contagious

Bronchitis
Acute bronchitis is a reaction to a viral respiratory infection (VRI) by suseptible indiviuals, leading to frequent cough, increased mucus production, chest tightness, wheezing. Less than 20% of the population over react to the irritation of a VRI with symptoms noted previously. The underlying VRI is contagious for 24 hr before the onset of symptoms and for about 5 days after the symptoms begin.

Dr. Joel Gallant answered:

How long are you contagious on antibiotics for an upper respiratory infection?

Antibiotics?

Respiratory_tract_infections
An upper respiratory infection is almost always a viral infection, which should not be treated with antibiotics. Therefore, antibiotics don't affect your ability to transmit the infection to others. You're generally contagious for the first 3-4 days.

is acute bronchitis contagious?

Yes

Bronchitis
Acute bronchitis is currently considered to be caused mostly by viruses, which are quite contagious. It can be transmitted in the air, by coughing, and by contact with the sick person's hands (if the hands have been coughed on or touched the mouth). The most contagious period is usually early in the illness, and shortly before the illness begins to show symptoms.

Dr. Sue Ferranti answered:

Until when is acute bronchitis contagious?

Depends....

Bronchitis
There are many different bacteria and viruses that can cause acute bronchitis, each with a different incubation period and shedding time. So, the amount of time a person is contagious depends on which organism is causing the infection.

Dr. Bernstein Joel answered:

I was wondering is an upper respiratory infection contagious?

Yes

Infection
An upper respiratory tract infection is always contagious. The word that you use, infection, means that it is usually viral and much less frequently bacterial. Therefore, if you cough or sneeze you are shedding infectious material to the next person or into the environment.

when is acute bronchitis contagious and when is it not? Seems physicians some say it is and some say it isn't?

Hard to tell

Bronchitis
Some cases are viral & contagious during the early febrile phase but less so as it progresses. Some will represent a mycoplasma germ that is contagious & often affects groups. Most that have a simple bacterial bronchitis do so from normal airway germs that settle in after a virus,These are not contagious.My routine is to consider them contagious until fever free 24h or on med 24h.
