No - except quads: The inflammation of the bronchus (upper large airway) would lead to a cough unless the patient is unable to cough (e.g. they are a quadriplegic). A viral bronchitis can lead to a non-productive cough initially, but usually these will become productive in a short period of time, so a non-productive cough can be bronchitis. ...Read more

Diagnosed w/ non-viral bronchitis. Been on meds for 4 days, now fever came back. Am i contagious again? Why did it come back?
See doctor: Bronchitis is almost always a viral infection, although children can have pertussis (whooping cough). Fever may occur with this. If, however, the fever is quite high, the character of the sputum is changing or looks like pus, the child is having problems breathing, or is otherwise worsening, then a visit to your doctor would be a good idea. ...Read more

Depends: Do not know how the diagnosis of bronchitis was made, so cannot clearly assess. If you have had persistent fever you may need further assessment depending upon your associated symptoms.

I've been sick the last few days (bronchitis, possible pneumonia now) my fever has been 103 to 102. Now it's 93.9. Should I be worried. ?
Fever of a little over 100 (100.3 at first, then went to 100.6) thinking bronchitis is the cause. What should I do?
Viral infections: can last between 2-8 days, depending on the virus and location of infection. For bronchitis, you will likely not have fever after day 3-5 but may have cough for 1-2 weeks, sometimes a whole month. Inflammation which causes the cough can last many weeks after the initial infection. On average expect 5-10 day cough as long as you don't have underlying asthma or COPD or other lung disease. ...Read more

Hi can you have bronchitis without a fever?. And how do you know if you have it is there a test for it?. Where can u buy it what's the symptoms of it.
Lotta coffin: Yes, you can have what's called "bronchitis" without a fever, or much else but a cough. The cough can vary and also what you may spit-up. At your age if you DON'T have a fever or spitting up bad-tasting glarp, then it's a cough, variously called "bronchitis," "viral syndrome," or something else that sounds official. But if it's intense, frequent and annoying, see your doctor, it could be pertussis ...Read more

For last 2 days my brother 36 yr coghing blood(morningcough fully covered by blood).He is non smoker and had bronchitis at age of 5.
He had fever, co?
See a doctor!: Coughing up blood (hemoptysis) is always a worrisome sign, and should be checked asap by a physician or health care provider. While at his age, and non-smoking status, cancer is less likely, many other conditions including bronchitis, pneumonia, tuberculosis and other diseases may cause blood in sputum. Online advice is not a substitute for a good history, physical examination, xrays and labs. ...Read more

I just got over bronchitis, my son has been coughing for two days and has a fever should I take him to the doctor ?
Yes: Bronchitis is usually caused by a virus and antibiotics are not recommended. But if your child has a fever and a cough for more than 2 days, he should be checked for other types of infection. It may be a virus as well, but it's hard to tell without an evaluation. Antibiotics do not help viral infections at all- they just need to run their course. ...Read more
Does low gr fever & slightly thick discolored mucus mean I need antibio for sure? Had walking pneum, now bronchitis, did doxy 2 wks ago, still sick.
NO NO NO!!!:
Almost all bronchial infections are viral. Many research studies show antibiotics don't help bronchitis more than placebo and they may do harm. I advise pellargonium sidoides, sold as Umcka in health food stores, proven much more effective than antibiotics for bronchitis; see https://tinyurl.com/y8zkbknv
Also take a good multivit.,extra C and D, consider homeopathy:
